Spring Library courses (LIBR) will help you master the skills and concepts you need to succeed in a wide range of courses at SCC and beyond, and also give you a perspective on information; when people speak of “fake news” and “credible sources,” you’ll be the expert in the room.

  • LIBR 325, Internet Research Skills, is a wide-ranging 3-unit course where you will master search strategies and grapple with the complexities of online communication.
  • LIBR 318, Library Research and Information Literacy, is a 1-unit, second-8-week course, great for getting started on how to approach research projects.
  • LIBR 307, Medical Information Resources, is a 1-unit, second-8-week course perfect for students planning a career in medical or Allied Health fields.

All three courses are taught online; neither requires a textbook purchase.

Note: if you register and then receive word that the course is ineligible for financial aid, please consult the Make Your Courses Count page and contact a counselor. The course may be eligible for financial aid even if you initially receive notice that it is not.
