Research Skills Tutorials

The Research Skills tutorials are a set of 9 modules that provide a foundation of information literacy and critical thinking skills. Topics range from getting started with research, to evaluating and critiquing information sources, to citations.

The modules are listed in a suggested order of completion, but users may complete any part of any module. If you are off-campus, you will need your PODS login to access the tutorials.
