Research Tutorials @ the Library
The Reference and Instruction Department develops interactive tutorials and instructional videos on various information literacy and research topics to supplement class instruction. Below you will find a list of available tutorials which can be integrated into Brightspace courses upon request to the Instructional Design Librarian, Darlene Aguilar, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tutorials require the latest Chrome Browser to operate correctly. Please contact the library with any questions or concerns.
First Year Seminar: Lion's Guide to Research
The following tutorials were developed to meet the information literacy learning outcomes for the First Year Seminar courses. These modules 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 these tutorials.
