Library Research Skills Workshops

Learning to do library and web-based information research, also called information competency, is important for college work and career skills.  The Library offers independent online workshops that can be used to help students meet the information competency learning outcomes required by their courses and as part of the CCSF Information Competency graduation requirement. For English 1A, completion of 5 workshops meets the 5 hours of out-of-class assignment related to information competency. We recommend workshops in this order: Getting Started, Information Identifier, Database Seeker, either Citation Champion (MLA or APA; no need to do both), Information Evaluator, and Research Challenger.
