- One 15-minute electronic search training session (lead by Tabby).
- One 15-minute book search training session (lead by Roger).
2. The actual "project" that requires teams of three persons to locate and document their answers to a single question.
- Teams will record the information gathering process and the resources the team utilized.

3. Each team submits their One-Hour Project as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file to Professor Martinez at email@example.com by 7:15 pm.
SPECIFICS REGARDING THE PROJECT:
- Three-person teams are charged with using all available resources (library and Internet) to find and propose answers to a question reported on an index card.
- There will be a total of ten questions for the entire class. Thus, two teams will be competing against each other to answer the question in the most thorough manner. (1 question for 2 teams. Teams of 3 students.)
As two teams will compete to answer a question, there will be an incentive to win the competition.
In order to complete the competition, the team must:
- Use at least 2 print sources and 2 electronic sources Document your sources.
- Propose answers for their question.
- Complete the entire One-Hour Project form and submit it by 7:15 pm.
