Question:

What is an Information Community (IC)?

Answer:

In simple terms, you can say that an Information Community is a group of people with a shared informational goal/interest. They occupy the same spaces and use the same resources. If you want to get into more detail, I would suggest diving into Durrance and Fisher's writings on the subject. They believe that information communities share five major characteristics, including users have access to vast topic curated resources, they share what they learn with others, tend to form groups around shared informational needs, they break down barriers to needed information, and through all these shared resources, they develop a sense of connectedness.

Question:

What are the common overarching themes in dystopian literature?

Answer:

First off, dystopian literature has positioned itself to be the mirror opposite of utopian literature (a genre defined by an idealistic and perfect setting). In that sense, dystopian is full of dark themes such as government control (1984, Brave New World), environmental devastation (Maze Runner), technological control (Ready Player One), Survival (Walking Dead), and loss of individualism (The Giver.) Many of these themes overlap, such as in Brave New World, where the themes of government control, technological control, and loss of individualism all have a hand in weaving together the novel's dystopian setting.

Question:

What is the best way to prevent plagiarism and keep track of my sources?

Answer:

One way is to write as you go and keep a source list. While reviewing a potential source, be sure to make notes about what you are reading and your ideas about the topic. When you are finished, be sure to double-check your notes against the material that you reviewed. If there are any instances where two or more words are copied from the text, use quotation marks. That prevents your ideas and the ideas that you have read from becoming cloudy later. Also, remember to write down as much about the source as you can in a source list. Do this when you review it, so you don't have to go back and find it. It makes your citations later a breeze!
