102 Internet Research Methods (1) UC:CSU Lecture 1 hour.
Recommended: Computer access, experience using the Internet and word processing programs.
This course covers the process of conducting online research using book catalogs, ebook collections, article databases, and the web. Students will learn how to identify and locate applicable resources, evaluate their content and credibility, and utilize sources in an effective and ethical manner.
NOTE: Currently, LS102 is an introductory course. The Pierce Library is considering offering LS101 as an introductory course and making LS102 an advanced course. The introductory LS101 course would provide essential basic lifelong information researching in support of courses like Counseling 40, as well as Summer Bridge and College Promise programs. LS102 would provide more advanced information researching for academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, in particular, for those transferring to 4-year colleges and universities, as well as those with an AA degree goal.
