LIS 10: Use of Information Resources is a one unit, transferable, short term, online course that is great for all students because it teaches information competency and research skills vital to college success. Specifically, LIS 10 teaches students about the variety of information research tools available and how to turn an information need or research topic into a clear statement with useful keywords for searching.
In this class, students learn techniques for conducting effective search strategies using One Search (the CCSF search tool), periodical databases and websites. Students also explore other reference and research tools and learn how to obtain, evaluate and correctly cite information resources for projects and papers to avoid plagiarism.
