For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -The OSU Library offers an online course to help students use information resources more effectively.

Library and Internet Information Competencies (LBSC 1011) is a one-credit-hour course lasting eight weeks. The class is conducted through Desire2Learn and instructs students on the Library's online catalog and electronic databases to help them develop more efficient research skills.

David Oberhelman, one of the professors teaching the course, said, “Library Science 1011 helps students succeed in their other courses. It teaches them how to find the scholarly information they need, and gives them the confidence to know where to go for the appropriate sources for all of their research needs.”

There are four sections remaining during the spring semester. They begin on March 26. Students can enroll now through SIS.
