sont les recherches?

Alliance to Advance Liberal Arts Colleges

 “Research” is an iterative process that includes:


·       Selecting and framing a topic

·       Background reading / familiarizing oneself with the topic

·       Identifying and finding relevant knowledge produced by

·       Evaluating sources for credibility and relevance, i.e.
          moving from browsing and skimming to close reading.

·       Original discovery and evidence gathering in labs, the
           field, archives, etc.

·       Situating evidence within the existing scholarly


·       Synthesizing information sources/evidence in order to
            craft arguments and or create new knowledge

Comment les trouver?


The proliferation of digital information resources have made conducting research paradoxical: information may be as limitless as the universe, yet defining and narrowing inquiries and finding relevant and accurate answers is one of the most difficult and frustrating challenges college students face today. Furthermore, based on the flood of comments and reactions to these findings from educators, administrators, professionals in various fields, and laypersons, it appears that the “information-seeking paradox” affects almost everyone.
