Students' Guide to Library Research & Information Literacy
Video tutorials and self-assessment questions comprise this Library Research and Information Literacy guide to help all levels of undergraduate students learn the process of finding, evaluating and using information throughout research.
Welcome to Elihu Burritt Library's Guide to Library Research and Information Literacy. This guide was created by members of the Reference and Instruction department to help CCSU's students start out with research. Use the navigation along the left to work through the tutorials.
Please keep in mind that you might view these tutorials "out of order," depending upon the kind of research help you need at any given time during a research project. For instance, you might choose to learn how to format a citation while you are gathering sources so that you can build your bibliography as you conduct your research. Noting citations for every potentially usable resource as you find them is a good habit to practice so that you don't have to replicate a search in order to rediscover a source that you wanted to use (it's often hard to find the same source twice).
We have included a link to CCSU's Academic Integrity policy for our CCSU students. Please don't hesitate to suggest other links or additional resources that you think would be helpful!
