Resources for finding data and developing information evaluation skills for the Everyday Data course.

Welcome to the Everyday Data Library Guide

Dear Students:

I hope the material in this guide helps you with your coursework for Dr. Booker and Professor Beckles' course.  This page contains information about research resources related to data sources, data management and information evaluation. Other pages include basic information about using the Rutgers University Libraries as well as suggested sources and examples of search terms to start you on your journey.

If you want to use the libraries' resources from off campus, you will need to connect to them thorugh the libraries' web site by logging in to your account. There is a LibGuide that will help you get started using Rutgers Library Resources.

If you live too far away from any of the Rutgers Libraries to pick up a book you want, you can order it through your local library via Interlibrary Loan. Be aware that this process may take a long time, so plan your research projects in advance to allow for delays in delivery.

Please contact me any time with questions about research, or you can call the Dana Library Reference Desk during their listed hours of operation.

Best regards,

Fobazi Ettahr
