Research Tutorials @ the Library

Lion's Guide to Research & the Library was developed to meet the information literacy learning outcomes associated with Loyola Marymount University's new First Year Seminar course. The four modules that comprise this tutorial are integrated into each First Year Seminar and cover the basic research skills students need to succeed in college. While these modules are intended for freshman students, anyone needing a research refresher course will benefit from completing this tutorial.
