NAVIGATING THE SEA OF INFORMATION

Synopsis: NAVIGATING THE SEA OF INFORMATION is about the struggles a student encounters as she attempts to do library research in preparation for a biology class paper. By beginning her research without a plan or strategy she quickly becomes overwhelmed by the huge amount of information available. She literally does not know where to start. She is “adrift in a sea of information.” With the help of a librarian she is able to develop a strategy for narrowing her focus. This plan produces a manageable number of resources which directly relate to her subject.
