Overview of the Library's teaching and support services for information competence/research skills, as well as tutorials, guides, and assignments.

Improving Student Research Skills: How Can the Library Help?

The J. Paul Leonard Library Instructional Services programs can assist faculty in teaching these skills and in incorporating them into the curriculum. We offer:

Information Competence Requirement

OASIS Tutorial No Longer Required

Beginning fall semester 2014, the Basic Information Competence Requirement will no longer be required, and thus completion of the requirement will no longer be tracked. This is due to the new undergraduate baccalaureate requirements, which have built basic information competency (research skills) into the curriculum (rather than the previous standalone requirement).

Research Skills Teaching & Learning Resources

The Library recognizes that some faculty may wish to continue to use the OASIS tutorial in their courses. Most of the content is still available at this new link. The quiz feature has been removed from the tutorial.

The Library has a number of new and improved resources that you can use in your courses to teach and learn research skills. This website outlines the various resources available to you. In particular, for faculty wishing students to complete a comprehensive, basic overview of research skills with proof of completion, we recommend the Library Skills Tutorial.
