We recommend you start by scanning the literature to see if there is information on your topic. This will also be a good way for you to begin narrowing your topic as google research vs. local library search(ing) is a bit too broad a topic to cover completely into a few pages.
We recommend you begin your research in the databases. You may access these databases by going to the all purpose libguide at libguides.brenau.edu/allpurpose. Next choose the Articles tab. Next choose the database Academic Search Complete. You will be asked to sign in using your six digit student ID and the first part of your Brenau email address. Then narrow your search by clicking on the full text and the scholarly (peer reviewed) buttons below the search bar.
Enter your search terms, I used the terms information literacy skills. I got some good results such as "Students' perceptions of their information literacy skills: the confidence gap between male and female international graduate students" and "Internet literacy and digital natives’ civic engagement: Internet skill literacy or Internet information literacy?"
Good luck with your research.
