College Studies Online Course
All incoming, first-year students complete this summer course before they arrive on campus. Part 2 of the course teaches students the fundamental concepts of information literacy: how to find information at the William & Mary Libraries, how to evaluate information sources for relevance and reliability, and how to use information sources ethically. You might consider helping students make the connection between what they learned in Part 2 of College Studies and the projects they are doing in your classes.
