This group of seven students admirably traversed the vast resources of a variety of libraries on campus to produce two excellent projects, a written report and a DVD film. Their essays clearly reflected their growth through the research process. For example, one essay describes the process of going from a frustrating Google search to seeking help from colleagues and librarians, learning about what they called "priceless tools." The group’s paper provides a history of Microsoft as a video game developer by examining the integrated, globalized plan of production, marketing and design of Xbox 360 in the process of becoming a transnational commodity. The paper reveals attributes of the technology involved in the development of Xbox 360 as part of its focus.
