Choose appropriate key words to search information online.

Chosse various indexs whith the help of technical tools, e.g. EXCEL, to assess the information resopuces as well as the data collected.

An example of being information literate

Once I was an employee working for customer service. I was responsible to collect the data of customers frequently asked questions. After collecting the data through searching the records in the database of our company and communicating with the agents, I gathered the questions and use Excle to analyze the data with several indexes working out some diagrames like pivot tables.
At last, I chose the most valuable quetions and come up with the solutions after assessment.

Legal and ethical use

There are some implications for our poster. Those 7 dwarves possess quite different characters. Their names are Doctor, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Happy, Dopey, and Grumpy. Though they are not relative with 7 pillars, we chose them because they are so lovely. Besides, the fairy tale 'Snow White and seven dwarves' left us a deep impression in our childhood.

My own IL need and plan of developing needs

I aim to prepare for my essays and find reading resources.

Searching for reading resources:
Books are not on loan and have no electronic versions.
Books can only be borrowed for a quite short time.

Developing needs:
Indentify the most essential contents in books and photograph the relative pages.
Look for alternative resources by using search engines like Google.
Search online for purchasing second-hand books with appropriate price tags.

New assessment rules:

 Developing needs:
Understand how to think like a local people according to the organization culture.
Find out example essays online, analyzing their structures and how they provide evidence to support their arguments, then, take notes.

information universe

When I was studying Computer Science in China, I had to look for a lot of information in order to learn about programming. All teacher taught us was mainly about C++, and we have to learn other programming language like VB, Java etc. by ourselves. Then I have to try my best to look for useful information I need. Before learning the language, I could use Google or Baidu to have a general concept in mind and then look for the online courses related. As long as I met with problems, I can search the problem that I met with and perhaps someone else had already answered similar similar questions before. As a result, I can make reference to them. In addition, if the answers were not satisfied, I can write them down and post them in Baidu Zhidao and someone may help you soon.
