Today in my Info Literacy class at Queens College we were introduced to the Cornell University Library's website tutorials. I brought it up in class that an article that I had used on the paper I turned in today also had seven steps. When I asked my professor about this discrepancy and suggested that the authors of the article I used had ripped off the idea from Cornell, my professor said that it was commonly accepted fact that the process (research) takes from six to seven steps. I found the online tutorials and the ancillary web pages that emanate from the index page of the 7 Steps of the Research Process to be quite helpful, even for a person about to finish a degree in Library Science. Check it out and let me know what you think because I would like to use this website at my job at Bronx Community College as a checklist for students that are conducting research themselves.
