Library Classes

The Library teaches several for-credit library courses:
  • Library 1, a one-unit course, teaches students research skills, and how to evaluate and use information resources.  It is transferable (CSU).
  • Library 3, a three-unit course, covers advanced research skills and in-depth study of electronic resources: web search engines and electronic databases.  This class is transferable (CSU and UC).
  • Library 10, a half-unit course, familiarizes students with resources related to specific subject areas and disciplines, such as social science, business, or literature.  Library 10 is transferable (CSU)
  • Library 15, a two credit course, is designed to assist instructors in developing the ability to interpret, evaluate and critically analyze information for the purpose of infusing information competency skills into the curriculum. The course will define what information competency is, its significance in the classroom, and how it can be incorporated into classroom assignments. Emphasis will be on research topic analysis, location of information, evaluation, synthesis and presentation of information with a special emphasis placed on new technologies and research. Library 15 is transferable (CSU)
