Library Research

Pathways Overview

Program Pathways are a series of courses and experiences carefully selected to help you earn your credential and prepare for your career or university transfer. Program Pathway Maps guide you through quarter-by-quarter coursework, indicate when you’ll need to complete important steps, and describe popular careers in this pathway. Some course sequences or recommended courses can be customized or adjusted by speaking with an advisor.

North's Library Research courses equip you with critical thinking skills you need to become an effective citizen, smart consumer and successful college student. You’ll learn how the Web bends and filters what you see, how to protect your information from those eager to profit from it, and the best strategies for college-level research. Library Research credits count toward AA degree requirements and transfer to many four-year institutions.
