This is also true of the Discussion. You have to submit, even a sentence for me to enter the grade. Otherwise, I will have to enter it on paper and you won’t be able to view it. OK, I see that none of you have submitted your discussion in the Submit Assignments Boxes, too. I will assign the grades on paper but you will not be able to see it. Everyone who has posted in the discussion area for the Plagiarism, Netiquette and USA PATRIOT Act discussions will get 10 points for each of these postings. The Discussion on Censorship is the same as the PATRIOT Act, I’m sorry if there was some confusion in this case.
I will finish grading the Test 2 on Monday and you should be able to see the grade in Get My Grades. Both Tests are closed. I will post the Test 2 results on this blog, too, as it might not show in My Grades. I have noted that where some questions request two answers webct is only accepting one.
Please complete the End Survey, only 2-3 people have sent that in so far. This is part of class participation and will not be graded. They are sent to me without your name but I can check the list to see who has sent it in or not.
Please check this blog site next weekend for final results. Come into the Library this week if you need help in any way to complete the class. I will be there on Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening. I hope you have enjoyed this online experience. It takes a lot of discipline to complete an online class. Congratulations to those of you who have followed the instructions and finished all the assignments and readings. Have a nice break and best wishes for your success in 2004 ! --Joy Chase

I've also added a link to our college library home page. You can use this to get to the databases for magazine and newspaper articles, too

Alternatively, you can use The CD ROM : “The Path to Knowledge and Power is Information Literacy” by Joy Chase which is available loaded in the Evergreen College Library electronic research area (computer lab). Students can study the CD ROM there, in the library.
The Association for College and Research Libraries (a division of the American Library Association), has determined the standards for Information Literacy.
Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning. An information literate individual is able to:
Determine the extent of information needed ( Defining an Information Search. The query, or choosing your topic of interest and defining it, is the first important aspect of information literacy. You must carefully select your question and create subject words and keywords around it to help you do your research.)
Access the needed information effectively and efficiently ( Do your search and research).
Evaluate information and its sources critically. These sites on Evaluation are the most important : Critically Analyzing Information Sources; a link to Cornell’s tutorials on evaluation; Evaluating Web Resources by Jan Alexander and Marsha Ann Tate, Wolfgram Memorial Library, Widener University; A Guide to Critical Thinking About What You See on the Web.
Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base (Use it!)
Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose (write your paper, answer your questions)
Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally (see assignments on the USA PATRIOT Act, Plagiarism, etc.)
Our goal in this class is for every student to become information competent!
