What Are Tutorials?
Tutorials are self-paced lessons combining text, images, and video which show you concepts about library research. Tutorials may be:
- general, as in a tutorial about search strategies, or
- specific, as in a tutorial on how to complete a course assignment
The tutorials in this library guide were created by both LSSC librarians and database vendors. Therefore, some tutorials may not be specific to LSSC.
