Faculty:  Rachel Goon, Laurie Shuster (FS); Lesley Caldwell, Kathy Swart, Beth Thoms (PY)

The Information Studies department offers courses designed to help students understand the nature of information, as well as how individuals gather, engage and interact with it. Courses focus on research skills to meet the academic needs of community college students, those intending to transfer to a university, as well as for professional, lifelong learning or personal needs. Courses show students how to access, evaluate and use information and information systems and technologies, and to consider the impact of information in contemporary society through the examination of information issues and information-seeking behavior.
