Library Research Essentials: Overview


Library Research Essentials are 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.

Tutorials include:

  • The Research Question
  • Who Can You Trust?
  • Putting the Search Into Research
  • Give Credit
  • Collections & Services

Complete one, two, or all 5!

A short quiz in Canvas accompanies each tutorial module.
