100-level Classes Description

Another common access point to first-year students is large-enrollment 100-level classes, such as English Composition, or Intro to Communication / Psych / Business, or other university-wide service courses. In these classes, the librarian might work with faculty coordinating multiple sections of a common syllabus to incorporate IL instruction tied directly to a research assignment.
