Description

Reviews

Adult educators and learners need a practical guide for accessing and using information sources. This book presents specific information sources and conceptual searching strategies for using print and electronic resources. The impact of technology on accessing, storing, manipulating, and managing information is a focus. Since just finding information is not sufficient for effective use, the authors also discuss strategies for evaluating and applying the information. The book is a how-to guide aimed at helping adults become proficient information consumers. Academic faculty, literacy program instructors, librarians working with adults, religious educators, human resource developers, cooperative extension personnel, and program administrators will find it an excellent resource.

"… the authors explain how information is organized, stored, identified, and located; introduce a variety of information sources, including libraries, community resources, governmental resources, and the information superhighway; explain how to organize a search; and provide guidance for using and evaluating information once it is found." -- Trenton R. Ferro, The PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Volume 8, 1999
