Tips are provided for note-taking (including electronic note-taking), printing from electronic resources, and Web browsing. A chapter on citing electronic resources (using both APA and MLA styles) and two model research papers round out this practical book which can serve as a ready-reference tool, a circulating research guide, or as the perfect text for an introductory research course.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The contributorsprofessors, librarians, and freelance writersattempt to update the traditional "how to write a term paper" and "how to use a library" guides for the electronic age. Aimed at high school and undergraduate students, the book features chapters on "traditional" aspects of writing a paper (selecting a topic, using print sources and library catalogs, citing sources, etc.), plus a chapter each on CD-ROMs, online services, and the Internet. Of these, the "low-tech" parts are excellent, the others less so. The chapters on electronic sources too often include specific commands, lists of available resources, or a rehash of Internet basics, while effective use of electronic resources for research (e.g., search strategies) is virtually ignored. Nevertheless, this book provides lots of information in one concise, readable package. Studentsespecially those new to research papers and/or electronic sourcesshould find it helpful.Janet Crum, Oregon Health Sciences Univ. Lib., Portland
Booknews
A basic guide to researching, writing, and documenting research and term papers using electronic resources. Includes tips on accepted note-taking methods (including electronic notes), offers advice for using quotations and giving appropriate credit, and concludes with model research papers. Annotation c.
