The current generation of college students has used the Internet to access information since the early 1990s. No assessment of information use, quality, variety, and reliability of information generally occurs at both the student and faculty level. In this paper we use a package of teaching methods targeted towards improving information-seeking behavior among graduate and undergraduate business majors. The effectiveness of the teaching package is assessed through an evaluation of student term-papers and quality of resources used. We find that the package of teaching methods implemented does result in significant improvement in information seeking behavior, especially among undergraduate business majors.
