This guide is created specifically for section 30 of ENGL 115 for the Fall of 2021.

Relevance in the Age of Abundance

Information is everywhere. Fortunately, we have tools and strategies to deal with it.

Internet search with close to 17 million resultsSearching sources online produce one of three scenarios of which only one is good:

  1. Too many results. Try the tools provided to filter out irrelevant results to reveal what is most relevant.
  2. Too few results. Rethink the terms you are using in your search. Try similar or related terms. Reference works like encyclopedias, dictionaries, and thesauri can help.
  3. You find exactly what you want. Congratulations.
