The Information Literacy Tutorial

About This Tutorial
The Information Literacy Tutorial or TILT is an educational Web site originally designed and developed by a group of librarians, programmers, artists and students at the University of Texas at Austin to introduce first-year students to research sources and skills. This tutorial, modified from the original for use at Adelphi University, offers three modules, which you can complete in any order. Each should take you approximately 30 minutes.

You can navigate through TILT using the buttons in the left sidebar (once you have started TILT). These buttons offer tips and navigation related to the entire site. For example, the glossary section offers definitions of terms you may not know. Choose sitemap to see a content outline for the module you are in. Each module concludes with a quiz; it may be helpful to take notes.

Whether this site introduces new information or is a review, these fundamental concepts will be useful for any type of research you may do and will contribute to your success as a student.

Clicking the link below will take you to TILT. Follow all the directions - filling out any forms properly is very important.
