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.

  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.
