LTEC 4000: How To Research, Reference & Cite Your Sources



Suggestions from LTEC 4000 - Discussion Module 1.2 Where To Find T and D Articles


Google Scholar


You can search Google; however Google Scholar will have academic, peer-reviewed references that might be more applicable and based in research.


HOW TO: Google Search BETTER


This Google Search infographic offers a helpful primer for how to best structure searches using advanced operators to more quickly and accurately drill down to the information you want. This is not an exhaustive list of search operators and advanced techniques for using Google, but it's a good start to finding better content.


How to Find Good Resources


With the Internet overflowing with information and thousands of books shelved in university libraries, the research process for a paper can be daunting. However, knowing where to look when doing research and what constitutes a credible source can make it easier to sort through the results of an initial investigation. Knowing how to search for and evaluate books, articles and websites can help you locate the most relevant, reliable sources for your essay.


Finding and Evaluating Sources 


Strategies on finding sources of information, getting the material, and evaluating sources. Just because it is online and you found it - does not mean it is a credible or great resources.


Copyright, Fair Use & Creative Commons 

In thinking about digital curation and online literacy, I want you to consider how you share, remix, and adapt content you discover for training and development. In the course, I hope this wiki content will scaffold project development this semester; however I think it’s important to discuss copyright, fair use, and intellectual property as you might apply their training and development academic work to your own workplace.
