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.

Click on any of the links below or the tabs above to access the tutorials.

    This tutorial is designed to help you understand what information resources are available in the library and on the Web, how to find resources, how to use them efficiently, and how to evaluate them.
