Research Resources

Where Are Research Resources Found?

Research resources are found in various places, both within and outside the traditional library. In addition to the library, your instructor, and other people, broadcast journalism and the Internet and World Wide Web offer rich sources of material and information for your research assignments. When using these sources, you must exercise your critical thinking skills to distinguish credible from not-so-credible information. Chapter 6, “Using Library Resources,” is a systematic introduction to library resources addressed to UMUC students.

Resource material may be found in libraries, online, in broadcast media, and in many other places.
