With the advent of the Information Age comes a plethora of reading and multi-media material. Students are asked to locate and critically assess, gather, then synthesize this ocean of material into a cohesive report that avoids plagiarism, cites their resources and is uniquely theirs.

One of the greatest challenges students face, is determining where to find the best resources for their search and deciding whether the information is rich in content. Once they've located a good resource, their next big challenge is deciding whether or not they can legally use this information and if they can and do choose to use it, how can they avoid plagiarism. This tutorial will cover all of these questions.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, Real Audio and Flash player installed on computers in order to view all of the resources in this tutorial.
