This week’s module introduces you to graduate-level writing and research in the LIS discipline. In addition to the the Things to Read, Things to Explore, and Things to View, it is broken into two key parts: Part 1: Identifying Information Sources and Part 2: Academic Writing Conventions and APA Style.
Everyone should be settling in on our two WordPress sites. This one is our course site just for our section. The other is the full Community Site, where you’ll be blogging.
