LIB 120 Introduction to Information Literacy fulfills the English Communication General Education Requirement.  The specific integrated skills addressed in this course are:

Writing Effectively: In LIB 120, written assignments receive feedback from the instructor, and are revised before submission as part of the Paper Trail semester project.

Speaking Effectively: Group discussions and oral presentations lead to improved public speaking.

Using Information Technology: LIB 120 requires the use of information technology, including a range of electronic databases, word processing software, and the Internet.  Instructors may also require the use of class LISTSERVs, WebCT, or other tools.
