Are some information sources better than others? Why do some assignments ask you to only use peer-reviewed articles or empirical research articles? Why are some sources considered inappropriate for a research paper? In this hands-on workshop, you will learn about different sources of information, how they are created, and the ways they may be used in a research project.
