29 Introduction

Information Creation Is a Process

Module Introduction

“Information in any format is produced to convey a message and is shared via a selected delivery method. The iterative processes of researching, creating, revising, and disseminating information vary, and the resulting product reflects these differences” (ACRL 5).

In this module, we will learn more about the process in which scholarly information is created, and how we as student researchers should emulate that process. We will also learn how to create an outline to organize an argument and how to create an annotated bibliography. (1)
