For Immediate Release

STILLWATER - The OSU Library is offering LBSC 1011, an online one-hour-credit course teaching students how to efficiently use Library resources to meet current and future academic needs.

“This course teaches you how to find, evaluate, and use the library, online library resources, and the World Wide Web in your coursework,” said David Oberherlman, coordinator of LBSC 1011.  “It helps students find the information they need to succeed academically, and gives them the tools to navigate in this information age.”

LBSC 1011 helps students develop effective research techniques and use critical thinking to evaluate sources. Although the online course lasts just six weeks, it will teach how to research using the Library’s online catalog, electronic databases and the Internet.

The online course is a great way to earn academic credit and see immediate academic benefit. To accommodate students’ schedules, sessions begin throughout the semester. LBSC 1011 has one session offered Oct. 4-Nov. 5 and four sessions offered Nov. 8-Dec. 10.
