We currently offer one three-unit course entitled, LIBR 100: Research Concepts and Practice. This course gives students a comprehensive introduction to information competency skills and prepares students to complete college-level research assignments such as papers and speeches successfully. See the MJC Course Catalog for complete description.
The library has developed a collection of research guides that provide instruction, resources, and services to help you complete your research projects with ease. We also have several that you can use to learn how to research effectively and efficiently.
