Information Literacy Tutorial

The American Library Association defines Information Literacy as "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."  

The library has created an online tutorial in Moodle to introduce freshman and new students to Information Literacy skills and the research process. The tutorial consists of a pre-test, three modules, three quizzes and a graded post test. At the conclusion of the tutorial, students will know how to: determine the extent of information needed, know how to access information effectively, evaluate information and its sources, incorporate information into their knowledgebase, use information effectively, and use information ethically and legally. This online tutorial is also designed to provide a quick and informative overview and demonstration of The James E. Cheek Library.
