Do you find libraries to be intimidating? Would you like to navigate the research process more smoothly? Undergraduate students should consider signing up for INT-0150: Library & Information Research Strategies before Pre-Registration ends on November 16. In this course taught by Reference Librarian Joseph Tresnan, you will learn how to develop a strategy to tackle research projects; how to identify, find, and evaluate information in print and online; and how to document sources properly. INT-0150 is a 3-credit course meeting Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:00. This class can be used to partially fulfill the Problem Solving and Critical Thinking requirement of the Undergraduate College's General Education program.
