All of the resources in this course guide will help you with your English 101 research assignments. However, to best set you up for success with those assignments, you should take our "Library Research Essentials" self-paced Canvas course. The entire course takes about 1 hour to complete. You can come back to that course at any time
Library Research Essentials is a collection of interactive tutorials in Canvas that will give students a thorough orientation to Pollak Library and library research in general. Once students complete all of the tutorials (10-15 minutes each, one hour to complete all), students will be familiar with the library’s services and collections, with the basic functions of the library website including how to get started with library research, and students will recall how to get help. They will also learn about giving credit, forming a research question, and finding trustworthy sources of information.
Complete one, two, or all 5!
A short quiz in Canvas accompanies each tutorial module.
