Do you want to be a better researcher? Then register for a section of LIBR 100: Information Research in Fall 2016.
Did you know that librarians teach classes in information literacy and research? LIBR 100 is a one-credit course for students who are interested in improving their research skills and gaining an understanding of the flow of information and information sources. When students learn the skills taught in LIBR 100 they are better equipped to evaluate information, critical in a time when it is difficult to distinguish reliable information from misinformation.
A recent column in the Chronicle of Higher Education highlights how colleges and universities battle disinformation through media and information literacy programs.
LIBR 100, Information Research, is the libraries’ one-credit course in which students learn how to hone their research topics, select appropriate databases for their topics, and evaluate the information that they find, both through Hunter’s own resources and on the free web. The course was first offered in the spring semester of 2007 and has been offered every spring and fall since then.
