Rationale and Benefits

Again, the main reason for teaching online research is the amount of information students have access to on the Internet. CSU students can find sources from any computer using the online resources available at the CSU Libraries homepage. Not surprisingly, the idea of sitting in one place, often at home, and conducting research can be more appealing to students than actually visiting the library and finding print sources. Online research is also a great way to introduce students to the resources available in the library that they might not be aware of otherwise.
