Welcome to CORI: Cycle of Researching Information

CORI is a collection of learning modules designed to help CCAC students advance their knowledge of information literacy topics. At CCAC, information literacy is a valued pillar of the College's educational mission and is clearly outlined as one of the general education goals as follows:

The following are ways in which this goal may be achieved:
