Research Process & Information Fluency Skills

These brief, video tutorials are designed to help you use the library and enhance your information literacy skills. They are sequenced so that a student wishing to become information fluent may view each video by working through the page, top-to-bottom.  Upon clicking on the videos, you may also access the video scripts.

Each video contains a short quiz while each heading section may include a comprehensive quiz for that set, e.g. “Library Orientation Quiz.” Students may use these as “self-checks,” or faculty may assign them.  The results of the quiz will be emailed to students for forwarding to their instructors.
