While there is no major or minor in library or information science at Skidmore College, Scribner Library will be vital to your undergraduate success. Scribner Library offers one section of LI 100 Electronic Information Resources each semester (see the Interdisciplinary section of the Skidmore College Catalog). As a team taught, 1-credit information literacy course, new students may find LI 100 Electronic Information Resources to be an excellent introduction to college-level library research, regardless of discipline or program of study. The course examines online search skills in a variety of electronic databases and addresses the structure of disciplinary information systems, the selection of proper information resources, and the evaluation of search results, as well as the social, political and economic issues of the information age. Course web page for LI 100.
