Welcome to Library Skills 1! 
2014 Course Syllabus

In this course you will learn to become information literate--

you will learn how to:

  • find information
  • search information (in Library Catalog, databases such as EBSCOhost, World Wide Web and more)
  • select and evaluate information
  • organize information effectively

as we learn tips and tricks to become better researchers.   Throughout the course, you will gain research skills while you pursue a topic-- either on traditional or social media, a separate topic of your choice, or a topic you are pursuing in another class. 

To make sure you are exposed to as much skills and continue to practice between every class:

  • there will be at least one brief assignment due every class,
  •  a research project you will be pursuing throughout the class
  • a media literacy project of which you will have seen a film (or two to four episodes of an approved TV show),
  • and a final take-home examination

Be sure to look at the syllabus for more details.
