Greetings! Your Course Shell provides you with several examples of possible assignments. This LibGuides will address some of those while introducing resources to assist you with your research. These will fall in four broad categories.
These are resources to help you develop a basic understanding of a topic and perhaps help you locate resources for your Project. These are typically online encyclopedias and dictionaries which are a useful starting point and helpful for background information. These resources typically should not appear in your final draft.
There are online reference and periodical resources to which DeVry University subscribes. You may be familiar with some of these while others may be new to you.
Most of the Library's books are eBooks which can be read on your device. You may also request print books from any of the onsite Libraries.
There are a growing number of online journals which are usually free to the reader. They are self-archiving and sometimes free of copyright and licensing restrictions (you still must cite them if you use them). Their costs are supported by publication fees paid by authors or are externally subsidized. The quality of open access publications varies considerably. Some are quite reputable while others are fronts for special interest groups.
CIS graduates play essential roles on the business team, typically designing and implementing hardware and software solutions to business problems. They are also expected to possess knowledge, experience and skills that will enable them to adapt to change in thisdynamic field through a lifelong learning process.
