Online Library Workshops

Online library workshops cover a range of useful research topics, and are offered online via Canvas. Some City College of San Francisco instructors assign library workshops, but students are encouraged to take them independently as well. 

Evaluating Information

All information used for academic purposes should be evaluated. It is particularly important to evaluate the information found online - after all, anyone can publish anything on the web. To find out more about how to evaluate information, check out Evaluating Information.

Citing Information Sources

Citing information sources using a standardized citation format, such as MLA or APA, is required for responsibly using information. Visit Citing Sources for more information about citations.

Research Guides

Research Guides are a great tool to begin the research process. Designed by librarian subject specialists, they list print and online academic sources on almost every subject covered at CCSF.
