Information literacy in an inquiry course for first-year science undergraduates: a simplified 3C approach

P. K. Rangachari and Usha Rangachari have the article Information literacy in an inquiry course for first-year science undergraduates: a simplified 3C approach in Advances in Physiology Education. The citation is Advan. Physiol. Edu. 31: 176-179, 2007.

From the abstract:

In this article, we describe a simplified approach to teach students to assess information obtained from diverse sources. Three broad categories (credibility, content, and currency; 3C) were used to evaluate information from textbooks, monographs, popular magazines, scholarly journals, and the World Wide Web. This 3C approach used in an inquiry course for freshmen in an undergraduate science program can be readily transferred to other settings.
