Library 100 will help you to:
Find information in books, articles, and websites efficiently and effectively.
Evaluate the information you find in a number of ways, including how relevant it is to your research, how credible it is, how persuasive it is, and how current it is.
Use a wide variety of compelling information strategically and ethically to support arguments in your assignments.
We will reflect together throughout the semester on how you use information to complete academic assignments and in your daily life.
