The APA Style Citation Tutorial is created by staff at the University of Alberta Library to support students and faculty. The tutorial covers why it is important to use citations, elements of common source types, and how to create reference and in-text citations based on the 7th edition APA guidelines. This tutorial can also be used a reference resource.
This tutorial is your guide to use the library like a pro. It covers all of the information you need to find, evaluate and organize research materials. This tutorial is designed for upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students conducting research in physics.
By the end of this tutorial, you will be able to:
Critically evaluate information
Identify and avoid predatory publishers
Know where to search for relevant resources
Apply advanced literature searching techniques
Use a citation managers to effectively organize and cite materials
An introduction to philosophy with selections on metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and logic. The emphasis is on exposing students to important philosophers and issues in philosophy. Chapters include multiple choice questions to test reading comprehension.
Le but de ce manuel est de vous donner les connaissances de base nécessaires pour commencer à rechercher des informations en utilisant le catalogue et les bases de données de la bibliothèque de l’Université d’Alberta. Le manuel contient des instructions étape par étape, des vidéos et des exemples en sciences humaines et sociales. Pour atteindre les objectifs prévus, il vous faudra passer au moins une heure et demie à lire les instructions du didacticiel, répondre aux questions des exercices et revoir les exemples chaque fois que cela sera nécessaire.
Le didacticiel du style de citation APA est créé par le personnel de la bibliothèque de l'Université de l'Alberta pour venir en aide aux étudiants et aux professeurs. Le didacticiel explique pourquoi il est important de se servir de citations, des éléments relatifs à diverses sources courantes et comment créer des références et des citations dans le texte d’après les directives de la 7e édition du guide de l’APA. Ce didacticiel peut également servir de ressource de référence.
An instructional text that seeks to untangle the social complexities and ethical dilemmas of online data and information. DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP will educate readers on the economics of the Internet and the means by which political bad actors exploit its platforms to pervert the public discourse.
This book is the result of a co-design project in a class in the Masters of Education program at the University of Calgary. The course, and the resulting book, focus primarily on the safe and ethical use of technology in digital learning environments. The course was organized according to four topics based on Farrow’s (2016) Framework for the Ethics of Open Education.
This manual is about structures that occur within the Earth’s crust. Structures are the features that allow geologists to figure out how parts of the Earth have changed position, orientation, size and shape over time. This work requires careful observation and measurements of features at the surface of the Earth, and deductions about what’s below the surface. The practical skills you will learn in this course form the foundation for much of what is known about the history of the Earth, and are important tools for exploring the subsurface. They are essential for Earth scientists of all kinds.
The course that this document supports is about doing structural geology. It’s not possible to be a good geologist (or to pass the course) just by learning facts. You have to be able to solve problems. Do your lab work conscientiously and get as much as possible done during lab sessions when instructors are available to help you.
This manual consists of both readings and lab exercises, which alternate through the text. The readings are designed to be read and understood outside the lab sessions, whereas the labs contain specific instructions and questions to be completed. Before each lab, be sure you have covered the readings that come immediately before it.
This tutorial covers the library skills required for students in 200-level Biological Sciences courses.
By the end of this tutorial you will:
Understand the difference between popular and scholarly sources and know the different types of scholarly sources
Know how to read a scholarly article
Learn how to effectively search for articles and access library material from home
Know how to properly cite sources and avoid plagiarism
A Practical Guide to Introductory Geology is a comprehensive laboratory manual covering the physical aspects of geology, including rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, streams, structural geology, and much more. This manual provides ample background information to assist students learning remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. The text has a strong emphasis on examples from western Canada, especially Alberta and British Columbia, and includes a diverse set of exercises intended to accompany the GEOL 1101 curriculum at Mount Royal University. This laboratory manual is an adaptation of Physical Geology - 2nd Edition by Steven Earle.
