Product description


"While the treatment is novel, and quite a departure from the usual academic presentation, the material is right on the mark. Once you adjust your "textbook" expectations, the authors present you with a most readable, highly organized, and quite thorough exploration of research methodologies covering all aspects from the Dewey Decimal system to advanced Web searches; from ethics and validity to bias and misinformation. . . . Having taught college composition classes, I would highly recommend Information Now as a superb companion text. The relatable dialogue, engaging graphics, and creative approach to the subject matter will keep students reading and even enjoying the book."-- "Technical Communication"

"The updated version of
Information Now takes readers on a fast-paced ride through the world of information. In addition to covering the basics, this book takes a fresh approach to integrating complex issues related to privacy, equity, and bias into all aspects of the information ecosystem. Information Now offers a fun read and complements any instruction program by transforming abstract concepts into practical applications through critical thinking exercises, engaging graphics, and sharp text."--Cinthya Ippoliti, University Librarian and Director of the Auraria Library, University of Colorado Denver

Information Now equips undergraduate students with essential research strategies and tools as they navigate the complex information world. It scaffolds the research process through real-world examples, good humor, and helpful exercises. The authors have packed their many years of information literacy teaching wisdom into this short graphic guide--the comic-book style engages college readers and makes the learning experience enjoyable."--Ning Zou, Associate Director for Student Academic Services and Learning Design, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Information Now is an ideal antidote for students navigating the complex and often overwhelming world of university-level research. Newly updated to address the intricacies of a digital information landscape, this graphic guide is essential both for students producing research projects and for librarians teaching critical information and digital literacies. With relatable dialogue and engaging graphics, this creative approach to the many levels of the research process will draw in even the wariest student researcher."--Melissa Mallon, Library Director and Director of Teaching & Learning, Vanderbilt University

"Upson and Luetkenhaus have energized the second edition with critical issues for today's global citizen. The addition and breakdown of algorithmic bias, the SIFT method of fact-checking on the web, and the nuances of
Wikipedia are incredibly important for students and lifelong learners alike to engage with and integrate into their daily use of information platforms. A wonderful addition to any high school or college information literacy curriculum."--Joelle Pitts, Associate Dean, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries --This text refers to the paperback edition.
