Copying/ Printing at the Libraries

Your UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for copying and xeroxing at the UCI Libraries.  It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found ini the copy service units at each of the UCI Libraries.  Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted.  Costs will be debited at the rate of 8 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing.

Introduction to ICS Academic Programs

The Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences (ICS) is composed of three academic departments and there is a Research Guide to support each department that lists information resources and special services appropriate to that subject discipline and of interest to faculty, graduate students and undergraduates enrolled in ICS classes and engaged in its research programs.  Remember to use all the pull-down menus to find extra resources and information.

Make sure to use the specialized resources for each department.

Evaluating Information

When using Online or Internet Resources, consider Search Engines vs. metasites - evaluate resource - consider domain - .edu, .com, .gov, .org, etc.

Thinking Critically about World Wide Web Resources - or Evaluation Techniques for Internet Resources

  1. Authority control - authorship - who, affiliation, where
  2. Currency - note the date, the update, does it reflect the right period of time
  3. Evaluate the source - establish criteria that is meaningful to covering the topic
  4. Citing Internet resources - URL & date of the search
  5. Capturing and citing
  6. Copying
