From the Publisher:

Take your research skills beyond googling--for school and for life.

Armed with this lively guidebook, students will be ready to face the often daunting prospect of conducting serious research in the information age.

Fully revised and updated, The Research Virtuoso covers all aspects of research: how to decide on a topic, take notes, skim material, evaluate which sources (especially those on the Internet) are most reliable, organize information, and create a bibliography. Readers will also learn how to access a treasure trove of sources they may never have known existed, such as special collections and private libraries.

Fully revised, The Research Virtuoso is now divided into three key sections:

1. Getting Organized

  • how to avoid being overwhelmed
  • how to focus on and refine a topic
  • concept-mapping software
  • 2. Locating Information

  • primary and secondary sources (encyclopedias, almanacs)
  • effective searches via many kinds of search engines
  • online tools such as DogPile and metasearches
  • digital collections, library databases, archives, academic journals
  • 3. Evaluating and Processing Information

  • assessing the accuracy, relevance, and authority of sources
  • how to take notes
  • crediting sources and organizing citations
  • cloud computing
  • The Research Virtuoso goes on to show how effective research skills will help students succeed not only at school, but also in life: when considering a company to work for or purchasing anything from electronics to a house. Charts, lists, diagrams, and Grab and Go templates clarify and expand the text. An essential tool for every student!
