You will learn about the flow of information, how to be effective at the research process, how to access information in a variety of formats, and how to formulate effective searches on electronic databases and the Internet. You will also be taught how to evaluate the quality of Web-based and print information, and will become familiar with practical, social and ethical issues relating to information.
