Library Services Student Learning Outcomes

The library's mission is to support all Allan Hancock College students and staff with both immediate research needs and the development of information literacy skills, to enhance lifelong learning. In addition, the library is the campus "center of learning," with a welcoming atmosphere conducive to studying and learning.

The library at Allan Hancock College has identified learning outcomes to support its mission. The assessment of those outcomes enables the college to understand its effectiveness and improve library services and support functions.

  1. Students will navigate a physical or virtual library to find a variety of resources to answer information needs.
  2. Students will use the research process to efficiently locate and use the most appropriate source of information for a problem or question.
  3. Students will evaluate the quality of information sources for bias, currency, authority, accuracy, and coverage.
  4. Students will use information ethically by citing sources, not representing work attributable to others as their own, and requesting permission for use of copyrighted materials.

Eric Gardley
CAL Fire/San Luis Obispo County Fire

"Enrolling in the Fire Academy at Hancock was the best decision of my life. I am receiving an amazing education from instructors who have hundreds of years of experience combined. We are able to apply what we learn inside the classroom to real world applications by using the complex's state-of-the-art facilities. There is no doubt in my mind, I will be as prepared as possible to hit the ground running with a fire department after I graduate."
