About the Book

Provides a well-chosen range of exercises and assignments to familiarize students with basic print and electronic research sources.

    guide students through the research process; and
    reinforce skills through assignments requiring independent work
• Provides a balance of both print and electronic source problems in each chapter
• Offers a logical organization that covers all the main research sources studied in the typical first-year course, including both traditional and new electronic sources
• Includes exercises, with graduating levels of difficulty, from basic source exercises to others that require advanced research skills
• Provides print assignments that can be worked in multiple jurisdictions, reducing the demand on single library sources
• Provides answer keys in the Teacher’s Manual
