Ezra's Research Diary: Tried and True Strategies for Effective Undergraduate Research: Use Information Ethically

This library guide is designed to help students understand the overall process of undergraduate research at Cornell.

How do You Use Information?

Your time at Cornell is a valuable opportunity to reflect on the ways that you use information to affect your life and the lives of others. Here are a few questions to get you started thinking:

  • How is your life shaped by access to information? The lives of others?
  • How can your research benefit others?
  • What have you learned not only about your own research methods but about your personal engagement with the material? 
  • How has your research changed your path, both in terms of your career and your personal choices?
