In class today we discussed what research is and where we might go for information.
Here are some of my notes from the class.
Common language usages
White coats, family history, focus groups
Local history, rest materials, reactions
Formal, public end product...report, thesis,rules and styles
Quality control....ethics, standards
Institutional support....software, people
These notes were to help us determine what kinds of research exists.
Additionally we discussed where to locate sources and how to determine legitimacy of web sources. Various search engines were recomended as was the library web page. Keeping track of where we get information was also strongly encouraged and ways of doing so were discussed.
