types of publication
Things have changed. As the saying goes, “With great power comes great responsibility.” The internet, and all the information associated with it, is now at your disposal as a researcher. You are responsible for a lot more than is contained within the walls of the library. This can feel overwhelming, so we will start by exploring the different types of publications you may encounter. We talk about how to find them in a later chapter, but you need to know what you’re looking for before you learn how to find it.
Where do you go to find research? Well, that’s more complicated for you than it was for students 50 years ago. Before the internet, undergraduate researchers were responsible for the sources available in their college or university’s library. Under certain circumstances, materials could be obtained from other libraries through interlibrary loan services.
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the [email protected] project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.
