Folsom Lake College Library

The Folsom Lake College library curriculum teaches vital research skills that enable students to achieve success in their college classes, careers, and day-to-day lives. Students will gain “research survival skills” to cope with the information-rich environment in which we live. They will develop the ability to access information from a broad range of resources and to evaluate this information and its sources. Course study will include information from print, online subscription databases, and the internet.

FLC Librarians also offer non-credit library instruction sessions demonstrating the use of library resources and the internet. Please stop by the reference desk to pick up a helpful handout, obtain individual assistance, or for more information.
