Search Skills Introduction

In this lesson, we’re going to focus on developing search skills to help you locate information sources for your Evaluating Controversies essay. I know you’re all likely familiar with using Google to search for information, but we’re going to take a closer look and learn about more effective ways to search for popular sources like news, podcasts, blogs, and more. We will also look at how to use library databases to find newspapers and other types of popular publications.
