About the book:

For many students, learning how to use a college library--and make the most of the many types of information resources offered there--can be a daunting task. The College Student's Research Companion is a user-friendly guide ideal for students faced with writing their first assignment using the college library, and makes a perfect text for information skills classes and workshops. The manual covers everything college library users need to know about finding information in all formats available, beginning with using the OPAC and understanding library organization, and moving through essential reference books; how to use periodical indexes to find articles; CD-ROM databases and how they're used in libraries; an explanation of online databases and how they can help with research; and an overview of how to cruise the Internet to find information. Helpful hints and advice about simplified research methods, dozens of tables and figures illustrating results of actual searches, and appendixes covering classification systems and how to document sources, round out this comprehensive offering.
