This course develops a framework for research in the online environment and helps students build skills and techniques for success as online learners. Through quarter-long research projects on global issues, students examine various strategies for locating, evaluating, and applying information resources in the research process with attention to information issues like the impact of propaganda, censorship, and technology "haves and have not's." Each student is asked to conduct a field trip to an academic library of his or her choice during the fourth week of the quarter. However, if this proves to be too great an obstacle, another assignment will be given.
