Divided into 11 chapters, the book addresses factual information, how to research writing, numeric literacy, and other information-literacy topics. Each chapter starts with an introduction and specific learning objectives before moving on to manageable chunks of information. There are also quotes and diagrams throughout to emphasize the details. What makes Fulton's book effective is the inclusion of exercises-this moves the content from theory to practice.

Information Pathways is designed to assist every reader in improving their own level of information literacy. This phrase, information literacy, means developing and evaluating strategies for finding and adopting information. Each chapter covers a different group of resources, such as chapter 3, "Finding Factual Information," and chapter 4, "Selecting and Navigating Electronic Information Systems." The entries explain how this group is structured or organized. Each chapter has quick tips and explanations contrasting two different approaches to finding or negotiating your way to your desired answer. Each chapter offers a few exercises to improve your skills at the end of the chapter. Unlike bibliographic instruction classes, this resource does not cover specific titles and explain their benefits to find answers in a specific field of inquiry. It provides a much broader discussion of how to use competitive resources efficiently to retrieve information....This title is highly recommended for academic libraries teaching courses in bibliographic instruction and information literacy. * American Reference Books Annual *
