In addition, the library interface has changed a bit since the videos were produced. For the current interface, you donât see anAdvanced Searchbutton. Simply click on theSearchbutton, and you will be taken to the same interface that the video mentions.)After you have watched the tutorials, please complete the following tasks. Post your responses to this conference thread.Let us assume you work for a company that is hiring more and more employees of the millennial generation. (If you donât know what the phrasemillennial generationrefers to, the video above will define it for you. Watch the video, and you should have a better understanding of what millennial generationrefers to.)Your supervisor has asked you to conduct research on issues regarding employees from the millennial generation. For example, she mentions that millennial individuals may have different expectations of the work environment from those of workers from older generations. In addition, she mentions that millennials have different habits with regard to their use of technology than workers from older generations exhibit.The instructions you have been given by your supervisor are quite broad. But let us assume that this is the directive you have been given.For this reason, you will conduct a very general search on millennials and their work or technology habits. You are not quite sure how to focus the topic, but you know that you would like to pursue this general topic and focus it later.1. Search on some terms and find four articles on this topic. Your search can be quite broad at this stage. Try to use some searchphrasesthat require that you use quotation marks, as the video demonstrates.Please write the topic on which you searched and the search terms you used to search on it. 2. In addition, for the four articles you found, please writetitlesof the four articles and thejournalsin which they appeared. You donât have to cite anything in APA format, or anything of that nature. Just post the titles and the journal names.Thankslibrary tutorial — part II .umuc.edu/d2l/img/lp/pixel.gif” alt=””>Actions for ‘library tutorial — part II’.umuc.edu/d2l/img/lp/pixel.gif” alt=”” 10.5.4.599-164)”=”” 0px=”” no-repeat=”” transparent;”=””>Subscribe.umuc.edu/d2l/img/lp/pixel.gif” alt=””>Hide DescriptionWRTG 393 students,The following task is designed to expand your familiarity with UMUCâs Information and Library Serviceâs OneSearch function.

Directions for that writing assignment can be accessed by clicking .google.com/site/wrtg393writingassignments/home/wa-3—-instruction-manual”>here.To complete this discussion topic, please do the following:Watch the following video, which is sort of an instruction manual on the Kindle Fire:.youtube.com/embed/pEOLIF5qKZA?wmode=opaque&rel=0″>Then answer the following questions or complete the following tasks.1. The author of this manual does not define any terms. What terms might need to be defined to a user who is not at all familiar with the Kindle and who may never have purchased a electronic book? Please note that I am not asking you to define any terms. However, I am asking you to identify what terms might need to be defined.2. The author begins immediately with the instructions. He does not start off with an introduction to the device or an explanation of why one would want to know how to use the device.Please write a one-paragraph introduction that might be suitable for the Kindle Fire. What I am asking for is something similar to the âOverview or Introductionâ on page 258 from the Pearson chapter we looked at in an earlier discussion. For ease of reference, you can access that chapter by clicking .pearsonhighered.com/showcase/strategies1e/assets/gurak_ch13.pdf”>here.
