Knowing When to Ask an Expert for Help
One important aspect of being information-literate is knowing when to ask an expert for help.  When working on an academic project, this expert might be a professor, a librarian, a tutor, or someone in the Writing and Learning Commons.  A professor is an expert in the discipline; a librarian can find quality information and help a researcher find it more easily.  The Writing and Learning Commons can help students communicate the information and use it ethically by correctly citing sources.

The Key to Good Research is finding the right source for the right question.
