Reference librarians at Egan Library are here for you, both in-person and online!
Egan Library has many research guides available to help you improve your information literacy skills and complete your class research assignments:
Strengthen your research skills, enhance your knowledge of library and online resources, and develop your understanding of our networked information ecosystem by taking an LS course!
Introduction to the research process and information literacy skills, including strategies, tools, and techniques for locating, evaluating, and ethically using information from library collections, databases, and the internet. Students will also explore current issues in information literacy, such as mis/disinformation and algorithmic bias.
Each Fall and Spring, there are two sections offered - one asynchronous online section, and one hybrid section - on-site in Juneau and synchronous online over Zoom for students outside Juneau.
This course provides a great foundation in information literacy for new students. Upper level students can also use their research for LS 101 to support long-term projects in their other courses.
