~ New One-Credit Course, Spring 2014 ~

Amherst, Massachusetts – The UMass Amherst Libraries offer a new course, “Demystifying Library Research,” (UNIV 190-L) during the Spring 2014 semester.  The course, taught by Undergraduate Education Librarian Katherine Freedman, is primarily intended for first and second year students, and transfer students, but it is open to all. 

“Demystifying Library Research” will help students manage information overload, enable students to find reliable information more efficiently and effectively, and provide skills that will help them during their college career and in the future. Three of the meetings will be held at the W.E.B. Du Bois Library and the remainder of the course will be held online via Moodle.  The course is one-credit and there are no pre-requisites required.
