105: Research in the Information Age
The Spring pilot of Libr105:
Research in the Information Age was a great success!
Although many of the 17 students said that the class was a lot
of work for 1 credit, all the students indicated that the course
was valuable and worth the time invested. Take a look at Spring
quarter's LIBR105 Blog
and the LIBR
105 Web Site.
This course is designed for students
who need to improve their research skills. It's ideal for returning
students, transfers or students who will be required to write
research papers for other classes.
Summer quarter, LIBR105 will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 1:10-2:00, July 12 - August 11. Maureen Morasch
will be the instructor.
