Welcome to the research guide for Biology 208L. When we write about information from other sources, such as journal articles, books, and websites, it can sometimes be difficult to write in our own voice. This exercise will help illustrate how to use others' work appropriately and ethically, so that it's always evident to the reader which ideas and writing are your own, and which you learned from your reading.
The purpose of this guide is to take you through the material covered in the information literacy session. This guide also links to a set of tools that you will need in order to identify, evaluate, and locate information resources such as books, articles, and websites. These information resources will be invaluable to your research process for Biology 208L projects.
Feel free to return to this guide as often as you want.
