ENGL 1102 - Abbott (Online) - Spring 2022


Information Literacy Objectives for the Research Module

Upon completion of information literacy instruction, students should be able to:

2d) Identify appropriate library databases for specific research needs.

2c) Search the library catalog in order to locate an appropriate resource.

Library Guide Helpful Tips!

This is a multi-use library guide, designed to help with several assignments.

STEP 1: 

The first module is all about source evaluation, a key part of what you'll be doing. The 5Ws provide a quick cheat sheet and additional explanations so you can review your sources and make good decisions.

STEP 2: (Your Librarian Visit!)

Finally there's your research paper module. There is a TON of information here!  

  • Watch the very helpful research strategy video on the Research Paper Module page!
  • If you need a refresher, take a look at the Search Strategies page.
  • Review the Galileo: Articles page on how to use Galileo to find articles. (And the Navigating Galileo page has a helpful diagram of all the pieces of a results page!)
  •  On the Galileo: Subject Databases page, read up on subject databases. There are also recommended subject-specific databases to help you focus in on your topic. (Objective 2d)
  • Finally, take a look at how to use GIL-Find, our book catalog, to find books. (Objective 2c)


At the end of the semester, take the quick library assessment. It lets us know how we're doing as teachers and how you're doing as students!
