For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -Students looking for an extra credit have to go no further than the OSU Library. This spring, the Library again offers several sections of LBSC 1011, a library and internet information competencies course.

“This course helps students learn how to find information for their studies and how to research using the Library resources and the Internet,” said David Oberherlman, coordinator of LBSC 1011.  “It gives them the skills and knowledge they need to do research and succeed in their college-level courses and beyond.”

This one-hour course is offered as an eight-week face-to-face course or as a five-week online course, administered through Desire2Learn. To sign up for the course, visit the student self-service website.

To accommodate students’ schedules, sessions begin throughout the semester. The Library offers two face-to-face sections and seven online sections, taught by four different librarians.

LBSC 1011 has been offered in the OSU Library since 1997, online since 2006. For more information about this course, visit http://info.library.okstate.edu/lbsc1011 or call 405-744-9773.
