  • Evaluating information is so crucial, because everyone will use this skill no matter their career or where life takes them.
  • Popular magazines are what you would find on a newsstand. Are written for the general public, so usually leave out jargon.
  • Scholarly articles require prerequisite knowledge and are peer reviewed.
  • Catalog is a database that shows what the GSU library owns.
  • Try to use the advanced search option to be more descriptive.
  • Try to narrow or expand to get 20 resulting sources.
    • Look at searches may help provide ideas.
  • Each item has a specific call number (sort of like an address). Always copy the entire number!
  • When you see a period it’s actually a decimal. (Use logical-mathematical skills.)
  • Can check them out at other libraries with your panther card.
