The library skills course teaches students how to conduct college level research. It also makes students aware of library resources and services that can contribute to student success. Many professors give extra credit for completing the course. Check with them.
Students can choose from two styles of classes, on-campus or online. Students will be presented components of the library research process followed by short assignments. Topics of research will be selected by each student and will be used to complete the assignments. Students will find books, articles, websites, consult reference works and indexes using a mix of print and electronic resources. Copyright, plagiarism, citing works and evaluation of websites will be discussed.
Pre-registration is required for all sessions at the Circulation Department in the library.
