B.E.E. is the information literacy model that has been created to implement across campus. B.E.E. stands for "Brainstorm, Explore, Evidence".
Brainstorm is the initial process you go through once you have received an assignment in class. The most important part of this portion is choosing a topic that not only meets the assignment requirements, but is also something you're interested in researching/writing about.
Explore covers internet research. The internet can be a difficult place to navigate, but in this module, we give you tools to help you responsibly use the internet.
Evidence is the module that helps you dive deeper into a research topic by helping you find scholarly, peer reviewed research utilizing library resources.

Most of your professors will require you to use peer reviewed research for your assignments. Peer reviewed means that other experts in the field have reviewed the research prior to publication.
