Turbocharge your library research and earn 1 credit

Tired of spending hour after hour wading through Google results and library databases trying to find resources for your class projects? Want to learn how to search smarter, better, and faster? The Library is pleased to announce that our newly revised & updated course, University 106: Library Research, is available for Fall 2008 registration.

In UNIV 106 you will learn:
  • How to choose a research topic and develop search strategies that generate results.
  • Where to find the best information for your research topic.
  • How to use library resources effectively, with an emphasis on our digital resources.
You'll learn by doing. In UNIV 106, with the help of a faculty librarian, you will walk you through the process of creating a small, self-directed research project on a topic of your choice.

UNIV 106 is a one-credit course. Three sections are being offered in fall; two in-person and one distance:
  1. Mondays, 12:40-1:30 PM | Instructor, Rick Stoddart
  2. Wednesdays, 8:40-9:30 AM | Instructor, Sara Seely
  3. Distance section (BlackBoard) | Instructor, Kim Leeder
Don't wait to take this course! The biggest complaint we hear from students in UNIV106 is that they wished they had taken it sooner. If you have any questions feel free to email any one of the faculty members above.
