Analysis of Sample Internet Resource Guide Sections The sample included below does not include every section of the Internet Resource Guide. Rather, it includes the two key sections: front matter and abstracts. Sections not included here are the title page and table of contents, which should be relatively straightforward. Also missing is an overall sense of the guide’s design. Remember that once you have your front matter and abstracts written, you’ll need to design them as a usable guide for your target audience. For now, let’s just focus on understanding what the front matter and abstracts should include. Consider the following questions about this sample guide. (First, a bit of context: The sections of this guide were written by a former Penn State student who majored in nutrition.) 1. Who is the audience for the guide? How do you know? The author stakes a claim to a very specific audience, but is there evidence in the guide sections that demonstrates the author’s understanding of audience? 2. How is the front matter organized? Is the organization clear and helpful? 3. What does the front matter attempt to accomplish? 4. Are the abstracts complete? Do they answer the four questions set out in the assignment sheet? (What is this? What is in it? How is the information relevant and useful for someone in my field? Are there tips for using the resource efficiently?) 5. Do the abstracts organize responses to the four questions in an effective, logical manner?

Sample front matter: CONTENTS OF GUIDE The contents of this guide relate to the study of the nutritional sciences. I have included resources with the specific goal of helping to further the reader’s nutritional knowledge. Some of the sources will be found useful when writing papers or creating projects as an undergraduate, while others can be used for the sole purpose of obtaining a job in the field of nutrition or dietetics. Both library and internet sources contain equally as useful tidbits of information, while internet sources may seem a bit more valuable due to their ability to be used from the comfort of your own home. All sources that I have used in this guide are credible, academic publications or websites. AUDIENCE The intended audience for this document is comprised of students involved in the Nutritional Science major at the Pennsylvania State University. This guide is mainly for those students in the Applied option of the major because it is centered around the eventual goal of obtaining a career in the field of dietetics, but the Basic option students can still benefit from most of the resources included. It is assumed that those who utilize this guide are interested in learning more about the basics of nutrition. They might also be interested in the research behind the nutritional guidelines that are currently in place or some of the more intricate details behind the physiology of food and its effect on the human body. This guide is versatile due to its wide range of information, spanning
