Library Intensive Program

The Library Intensive Program is a special academic service that enables Brandeis students to develop the sophisticated information retrieval skills essential to modern life, in the context of formal degree programs and beyond. It is not a formal major, minor, or program.

In the courses listed below, instructional time is devoted to the formal acquisition of library research skills, including the use of more specialized resources such as scientific databases, full text electronic databases, specialized abstract and indexing services, archival resources, and Internet resources. Students are thus equipped to find and evaluate information from a wide variety of sources.
