With advances in technology, more information becomes available through a wide range of channels. Users can obtain information not only from more traditional, print sources, but also from non-traditional, open sources in various formats, offering information with varying qualities. Despite quality concerns, undergraduate students frequently use certain types of open sources to acquire information. Dr. Kim will present her research findings to shed light on the undergraduates’ source use behavior. She will also talk about what the undergraduates do to evaluate the quality of information from sources in new media platforms.
