Copying/Printing at the Libraries

Beginning in Fall, 2008 the UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for copying and xeroxing.  It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found throughout the UCI Libraries.  Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted.  Costs will be debited at the rate of 8 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing.

    Evaluating Information

    When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.

    Thinking Critically about World Wide Web Resources - or Evaluation Techniques for Internet Resources

    1. Authority control - authorship - who, affiliation, where
    2. Currency - note the date, the update, does it reflect the right period of time
    3. Evaluate the source - establish criteria that is meaningful to covering the topic
    4. Citing Internet resources - URL & date of the search
    5. Capturing and citing
    6. Copying
