About Information Literacy Tutorials for FYE

The development of information literacy is one of the keys to success in academic life. Information literacy allows students to assess information needs, strategize information-finding options, evaluate information critically, create meaning, and communicate that meaning effectively, skills that are crucial to effective scholarship. The earlier we can begin information literacy training for our students, the more likely they are to be effective researchers and successful students. We, at the Elihu Burritt Library, are committed to spreading information literacy and to helping you teach these skills in the applied setting of your courses. To that end, we've made a number of information literacy tutorials accessible to CCSU faculty and students.

How to Use these Tutorials

The tutorial modules are formatted in tables on each page and further subdivided into separate units, as they are in the ProQuest tutorials. You will find the corresponding CCSU library videos,the ACRL Information Literacy Frames and other tools and aids also listed in the corresponding rows for each ProQuest tutorial video. This structure was developed in order to suggest the easiest way for subject-specialist faculty members to build information literacy into your curriculum.

We have linked custom-made video recordings created by the instructional librarians from the Elihu Burritt Library at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU). This subject guide is subject to change in format and content, depending upon how you, the faculty members of CCSU, would like to use it.

Use the Tutorials

There are several phases in the scholarly research process. We've arranged these information literacy tutorials according to the following phases:

  1. Find Information
  2. Evaluate Information
  3. Use Information
