2. Select appropriate sources based upon information need and context (CRT, IIT, COK).

3. Use information ethically by citing sources in a standard citation style, with minimal errors (IIT, RES, COK).

4. Practice synthesizing information from more than one source into a new information product. (COM, CRT, IIT, ICD, RES, COK)

5. Demonstrate the effective use of electronic search strategies (IIT, COK). 

Each outcome is mapped to TCC's degree learning outcomes (DLOs), which can be found here:
