ncLibraries has created several online library tutorials that introduce research and academic integrity skills to students. These tutorials are a combination of text, short videos, and quiz questions that have an average completion time of 15 to 45 minutes. Once the tutorials are completed, students receive an email summary, which can be forwarded onto their professor as proof of completion. Links to our most popular modules can be found below. Please see our Information Literacy guide for a complete list of tutorials and videos. Feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
