BIS 300 & Information Literacy

"why" written on page with pencilBIS 300 instructors and librarians collaborate to help students develop research and information seeking skills for academic success as well as to instill lifelong learning strategies. Information literacy (which includes accessing, analyzing, evaluating, synthesizing, and producing knowledge) is a key component of all BIS 300 classes. Below are some learning goals related to information literacy that both librarians and faculty keep in mind when designing research workshops.

Example BIS 300 course learning goals:

  • To become a better critical thinker and writer, one who is capable of posing, answering, and reposing a variety of critical questions.
  • To become a better researcher, one who is able to use the resources at UWB and elsewhere efficiently and effectively.

Example BIS 300 research workshop goals:

  • Develop and refine research questions
  • Distinguish between primary and secondary sources
  • Identify and analyze primary sources

Additionally, your BIS 300 librarian can:

  • Recommend the best databases to search for your research topic
  • Answer your questions via email, phone or in-person
  • Meet with you individually to hash out your topic or discuss research strategies
  • Tell you about library services

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your librarian!
