  • How to use the interlibrary loan service
  • Source types: primary, secondary, tertiary
  • Source types: scholarly vs. popular
  • Avoiding plagiarism
  • Generating keywords for searching
  • How sourcing works
  • The information cycle
  • Assessing authority
  • Assessing relevance
  • Assessing accuracy
  • Assessing bias
