Checklist for Evaluating Web Pages

Preparing an Annotated Bibliography
This guide describes the process to follow when developing the annotated bibliography for the project and includes a sample annotation.

Understanding and Creating Citations
This guide describes when to cite, where to cite, how to "decode" citations, and describes the citation style used in this course.

Guidelines for Oral Presentations
This guide describes the process of preparing and delivering oral presentations.  Guidelines for preparing visual aids and handouts are included.  The role of the audience is also discussed.

Environmental Studies : A Guide to Finding Information
This guide contains a listing of books, periodicals, web sites, and research databases that will be helpful both in focusing the topic for the course project and in finding information for the annotated bibliography, the presentation, and the report.

Library Subject Headings for Middleton Chapter Topics
Library resources can be located by title, author, keyword, or subject.  When exploring a new topic, subject searches can be the most effective.  However, subject terms are assigned by the Library of Congress.  To find information on a topic, it is necessary to first determine an appropriate subject heading term.  This guide gives recommended subject heading terms for finding information relative to the Middleton chapters.

Classroom Materials
These materials include the handouts, exercises, and PowerPoint slides used by the librarian during class sessions.

Course Syllabus
Geography 111 meets 3 times per week for one hour during the 
semester.  The information literacy aspects of this course are included in the regular class sessions.
