Newsstand Spotlight: The Colorado Daily

News Body:
Today's Newsstand spotlight is a newspaper with an uncommon beginning. The Colorado Daily began as the Silver & Gold in 1892 as the student newspaper for the University of Colorado until 1971. It then moved off campus to become an independent newspaper owned and published by Prairie Mountain Publishing Company LLC. The Colorado Daily was one of the first newspapers to publish using the advertising supported free daily paper model that is seen throughout the nation today.

Students can read full-text articles in ProQuest Newsstand from 2010 to current.

Don't Listen to Fake News

News Body:
Everything we read on the internet is completely true...right? Obviously the answer is no, you can't believe everything you see on the internet. But if that's the case, how do you tell the difference between real and fake news? Here's a couple of different resources for you: How to Outsmart Fake News in your Facebook Feed by CNN and How to Spot Fake News by FactCheck.org. FactCheck is an especially good site as they also help you sift out all the hyperbole and "alternate facts" every politician tells us.

Title:
plagiarism Lesson

News Body:
IU and our faculty often tell students to avoid plagiarism like it is the plague, but even we recognize that sometimes students are not quite sure what plagiarism is. To help you better grasp what it consists of and the various ways you might accidentally plagiarize, the library has put together a short lesson. Available in the Writing Resources section of the library, Plagiarism: Avoid it at all Costs is a great lesson with several short narrated slides and a few simple questions that will get you on the "write" track to succeeding in college while also avoiding plagiarism.

Title:
Newsstand Spotlight: People's Daily

News Body:
Changing direction from our usual ProQuest Newsstand spotlight, the library would like to highlight the People's Daily as this week's newspaper.
The People's Daily is the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party, which also means it's the official newspaper for China itself. Because it provides direct commentary on the policies and viewpoints of China's ruling power, the People's Daily can give useful insights into the country on a regular basis. Editorials and opinions especially are worthwhile reads as they both play important roles in how Chinese leaders see themselves, the policies of the Communist Party, and their country.
While the People's Daily has been in publication since 1946, our Newsstand subscription has full-text access beginning in Oct 2013.
