The Research Process of Information Literacy

Identify the Information You Need

Begin your assignment by reading your assignment instructions carefully. Check to see if a specific topic or type of information is assigned. Now is a good time to reach out to your professor if you have questions about what you are required to do to complete your assignment.

Let's take a look at a sample assignment:

Choose at least two sources on the Black Death from the databases in the CSU Online Library. These sources may be articles or e-books. Then, write an essay of at least one page on the following topic: Characterize the significance of the Black Death’s impacts on the economic and cultural life of medieval Europe.
