John W.
Answer:

An argumentative paper makes a claim about a topic and justifies this claim with specific evidence. The claim could be an opinion, a policy proposal, an evaluation, a cause-and-effect statement, or an interpretation. The goal of the argumentative paper is to convince the audience that the claim is true based on the evidence provided.

Question:

What was the recent paradigm shift in information literacy instruction?

John W.
Answer:

Originally, the information literacy learning paradigm was based on a set of standards that described the skills learned. The skills included 1. Ability to identify a need for information 2. Ability to access information 3. Ability to evaluate information 4. Ability to use information to solve an information need. 5. Ability to use information ethically. In 2015, the ALA changed from concrete standards to a Framework organized around six frames: 1. Authority is constructed and contextual 2. Information creation as a process 3. Information has value 4. Research as inquiry 5. Scholarship as conversation 6. Searching as strategic exploration

Question:

Explain one possible disadvantage to a business targeting a niche market.

Answer:

A niche market is very small and potential sales are limited. There may also be limited scope for diversification and new product development. Consequently, firms cannot spread their risk. Small firms operating in a niche market may also be vulnerable. If a firm successfully exploits a niche market it can still attract competition. Niche markets, by their nature, are very small and unable to support more than two or more competing firms. As a result, if a large firm decides to enter a niche market they may find it easy to overrun a smaller rival. If they lose a grip in their chosen market, they are likely to collapse because they do not have other products or markets as a back-up. .
