Learning Outcomes

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) regards Searching as Strategic Exploration as one of six frameworks for information literacy. ACRL states, "Searching for information is often nonlinear and iterative, requiring the evaluation of a range of information sources and the mental flexibility to pursue alternate avenues as new understanding develops." 

In following this framework, student researchers in the chamber music literature course will participate in Searching as Strategic Exploration and will:

  • Identify locations in the UNT Music Library that hold music reference resources, music literature, and scores
  • Engage with databases using different types of searching methods, including the following:
    • Identify keywords and phrases for search terms
    • Conduct simple and complex Boolean searches
    • Conduct phrase searching
    • Conduct subject searching
  • Adapt to unexpected junctions in the research process
