Online resources have given us access to more knowledge than ever before. We're buried in data, and defining what is and what is not genuine information becomes more of a challenge all the time. In this fifth edition of Research Strategies, author William Badke helps you make sense of all of the available information, shows you how to navigate and discern it, and details how to use it to your advantage to become a better researcher. Badke focuses on informational research and provides a host of tips and advice not only for conducting research, but also for everything from finding a topic to writing an outline to documenting resources and polishing the final draft. Study guides, practice exercises, and assignments at the end of each chapter help reinforce each lesson. An experienced research instructor who has led thousands of students to become better researchers, Badke uses humor to help you gain a better understanding of today's complex, technological world. Research Strategies provides the skills and strategies to efficiently and effectively complete a research project from topic to finished product. It shows how research can be exciting and even fun.

About the Author:

William Badke is associate librarian for Associated Canadian Theological Schools and Information Literacy at Trinity Western University, British Columbia Canada. Since the mid-1980s, he has been teaching students the joy of research done well. His book, Research Strategies, now in its fifth edition, is a leading resource for courses in informational research.

Review:

"Written in an engaging conversational style, Badke walks the novice researcher through each stage of the information seeking process - from crafting a good research question and designing a search to selecting and using appropriate resources. Badke manages to gently contextualize the information environment, revealing complexities to the reader without being tedious or tiresome." - Meagan Lacy, ACRL Textbooks for Students.

"The book is terrific: it's written in accessible language for all levels of undergraduate students and includes both practical, skills-based instruction as well as discussion of the nuanced, critical thinking components of information production and use." - Maura Smale, New York City College of Technology

"William Badke has been prolific in his writings in the past twenty or more years. Almost any of his writings are exemplary of his persuasive and often eloquent articulation of, and sometimes defense of, information literacy. Seminal, perhaps, is his early book The Survivor's Guide to Library Research (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1990) and the follow-up, available in many editions, Research Strategies: Finding Your Way Through the Information Fog..." - S.M. Cowan in, portal: Libraries and the Academy, 14(1), 23-32.
