This module covers how information is created and the many different types of sources that you encounter while doing research. NOTE: These tutorials are only available for currently enrolled LSU students, faculty, and staff. When attempting to access tutorials from off campus, users will be prompted to login to their myLSU Account.
In order to find and effectively use information, you need to first understand how it is produced. This is where the information timeline comes in - it shows the progression of information about an event or topic. Understanding this timeline will help you better evaluate what sources you should turn to in order to find the best information.
