This guide will connect you with resources to find journal articles, newspaper articles, books, and other sources. It is structured around the I-LEARN information use and learning model (Neuman, 2011).  The tabs above will take you through each step of the process of finding, evaluating, and using information.

Recursive and flexible, the I-LEARN model can be used in any information setting.  The model includes six elements:

  • Identify an information problem by activating an interest, scanning the environment, and focusing on a question
  • Locate the needed information through searching and extracting the relevant information
  • Evaluating that information through questioning its authority, relevance, and timeliness
  • Applying that information to the question thorough organizing and communicating
  • Reflecting on what is found and revising as needed
  • kNowing through personalizing and internalizing the information (Neuman, 2011)

 I-LEARN model was developed by Neuman, D. (2011). Learning in information-rich environments: I-LEARN and the construction of knowledge in the 21st century.  New York: Springer.

This guide is part of dissertation research being conducted by Stacey Greenwell in Spring 2013.
