COM 2012 - Research Sources & Systems

Based on the Association of College and Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, this one-credit course is designed to acquaint students with the wide variety of resources, services, and systems they will encounter as researchers at Florida Tech and beyond. The course also emphasizes information literacy skills, research strategies, and tools useful in each student's field of study, as well as the use of other important print and electronic information resources. The acquired skills and knowledge should enable students to find, evaluate, and use information resources effectively in lifelong learning.

Offered each semester, COM 2012 is a required course for 11 majors and 2 minors. It also counts as a restricted elective in the biological sciences.
