LIB102 Beyond Google: Research for College Success exceeds goals

Our 1-credit course, LIB102: “Beyond Google: Research for College Success,” set another record in terms of enrollment this academic year with an increase of 50% (119 in Fall of 2016 and 171 in Fall of 2017).  This academic year, we were able to offer three of the five sections as hybrid courses. Although targeted to first-year students as a foundational course for their academic success, the course is open to any student who wants to learn key methods as well as tools to identify, locate, and evaluate information. Other gains from this course includes learning how to develop and refine an academic research or topic/question and learning; citing sources properly; and learning how to think critically about information and communications.
