LIS 186: Academic Workshop: Research and Information Literacy Skills is a 2-credit course offered this Winter term on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30-1:20. The course emphasizes the basic methods, purposes, and strategies of academic research that support University Seminar and other classes.

Whether you are a novice researcher or a seasoned veteran, LIS 186 uses a customized approach to advance and improve your abilities. Library faculty Melissa Anderson and Thomas Dodson will lead the course in a hands-on computer classroom environment to teach the use of library databases and other resources; the use of digital tools for organizing and managing information; the construction of in-text citations, bibliographies, and reference lists; and the use of critical thinking skills to evaluate information sources for appropriateness and credibility.

Don’t get chewed up by the demands of research projects. Enroll in LIS 186 and begin the path to better thinking, better papers, and better grades.
