The Information Literacy Tutorial

TILT is an educational Web site designed to introduce students to research sources and skills. The tutorial offers an introduction and four modules, which you can complete in any order. Each should take you approximately 30 minutes.

You can navigate through TILT using the buttons in the left sidebar. These buttons offer tips and navigation related to the entire site. For example, the glossary section offers definitions of terms you may not know. Choose sitemap to see a content outline for the module you are in. Each module concludes with a quiz; it may be helpful to take notes.

Whether this site introduces new information or is a review, these fundamental concepts will be useful for any type of research you may do and will contribute to your success as a student.
