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. The additional tutorial, Academic Honesty, reviews the LMU Academic Honesty Policy and provides an introduction to scholarly conduct for new researchers. While these modules are intended for freshman students, anyone needing a research refresher course will benefit from completing this tutorial.

Tutorials require the latest Chrome Browser to operate correctly. Please contact the library with any questions or concerns.
