Once you’ve taken the beginning courses, it’s time to DIG DEEPER into the information sources available within specific disciplines.
The ADVANCED INFORMATION SOURCES cluster contains four courses focusing on information sources and services related to key disciplines. The courses address information needs and behavior patterns of users seeking these types of information. Students will analyze and evaluate research dealing with information channels, research methods, and library service in their areas of professional interest.
Increasingly, library users expect instant, virtual access to materials. While this course includes both print sources such as reference and trade books and electronic sources including bibliographic databases, government and organization websites, audio and video materials, and ebooks; emphasis is placed on how technology and specifically social media can be used to connect with users and provide high-quality service.
