Credit classes we teach

Introduction to the research process and information literacy skills, including strategies, tools, and techniques for locating, evaluating, and ethically using information from library collections, databases, and the internet. Students will also explore current issues in information literacy, such as mis/disinformation and algorithmic bias.

Each Fall and Spring semester, there are two sections offered for this 1-credit course: one asynchronous online section, and one hybrid section (on-site in Juneau and synchronous online over Zoom for students outside Juneau).

This course provides a great foundation in information literacy for new students. Upper level students can also use their research for LS 101 to support long-term projects in their other courses.

Internet technologies play an important, often controversial, role in contemporary society, touching almost every aspect of our lives. Many dramatic, both dystopian and utopian, claims have been made about the transformative effects of these technologies. The course will provide deeper understanding of the power structures that shape the internet, social media and contemporary society. 3 credits. Offered each spring semester.
