What is BLISS?
BLISS IS NOT IGNORANCE! A good dictionary definition of bliss is complete happiness. Although we can't guarantee students complete happiness upon successful completion of LIS1001, we can guarantee that completing research projects will be much easier.
Research can be stressful for people who are unfamiliar with libraries and research systems. BLISS helps researchers develop familiarity with libraries and research systems and thus helps to eliminate much of the stress usually associated with college courses. Of course, knowing how to do research doesn't necessarily guarantee success in a college course. A successful student must have good writing skills, motivation, and the desire to succeed. Having good research skills can help, though, by saving a student time, time that can be used for reading course materials, for polishing written assignments, and for assimilating ideas.
BLISS shows students how to locate information fast in libraries, in online databases, and on the Internet. Anyone can find information. But finding the best information available can often be time-consuming and tricky. LIS1001 will help students to become efficient researchers, researchers able to quickly sift through mountains of information and find the best information on any topic.
Does BLISS sound like your key to becoming a good academic researcher? It is. Join us for a semester of learning how to find information fast and discover bliss for yourself.
LIS1001 is taught in the Fall and the Spring semesters and is offered through the UNF English Department.
