The reading for Brief history of Media, introduces us to research strategies and the history of media. Badke points out that since Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press, information could be distributed to more people and information could be built on rather than passed down from generation to generation. I found it interesting to think that gatekeepers control what is published and I question whether publishers today favor profits rather than informative content. Later on journals, magazines, government and corporate documents, WWW and web 2.0 have provided us with content. While researching, it is useful for the researcher to look through books and their index, content chapters, preface and skim the book to take the information needed. Note taking is also useful and whether you summarize, quote or paraphrase depends on the researcher’s style. It is vital to give credit to the authors , so that you don’t plagiarize.
