This assignment is due on Monday, February 12, 2007. It needs to be submitted in the format listed in the "Fine Print" for this course. It is worth 10% of your final grade.
During the week of February 5-9, we will be working on library research and information literacy. The first class will be a basic introduction to the library services, and will be held in the normal classroom. The next two classes will be held in the library, and will introduce students to the resources that are there.
Everyone has begun thinking of questions concerning the city. I would like students to choose two of their most promising questions, and identify the following (please present your answers in full sentences and paragraphs, not in point form):
Your target length for this assignment should be between 750-1000 words for both questions together. I will be looking to see whether the resources you list are the best ones for the questions. Notice that I want to know why the resources you choose will be useful. That will require that you think about the question you are asking. If you are unclear on the question, you will be unclear on the resources. I do not necessarily expect that you will have the question completely worked out at this point (that's what reading and writing is for), but you will need to have enough so that you know where to start looking.
