Library 101: Home

Library 101 is an online introduction to research and library resources.

Welcome to Library 101!

Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information" (American Library Association).  Breaking down this definition we see that first we need to recognize the need for information, then we look for reliable sources of information, next evaluate the information we find, and then effectively present this information.  There are strategies and rules that can help us with our information needs.  The following modules will introduce you to these information literacy concepts through videos and exercises. 

Watch the tutorials and complete the exercises for the four tutorials.  Begin with how to get started, then how to use library resources, how to evaluate information, and finally citations.  At the end of each section follow the links to access mycourses, complete the quiz for each section, and receive your certificate.  

If you have any questions please contact Sherrill Shiraz or Brian Trippodo for assistance.
