PILOT Tutorials

Our Canvas-based Path to Information Literacy Online Tutorials (PILOT) will help you gain insight into the research process, develop effective research strategies, and become familiar with the Library’s primary research tool, OneSearch.

You will learn how to select the best sources to meet your research needs and how to avoid plagiarism through proper citation.

PILOT Tutorials

Each tutorial takes between 15-30 minutes and includes reading, video, graphics, practice exercises, and a quiz. After passing the module’s quiz with a score of 75% or more, you will unlock a certificate of completion, which can be downloaded, printed, and/or emailed.
