How To - Introduce Students to Library Research: Introduction

What's In This Guide

This Guide is a toolbox for teaching academic research. We hope you will use the tutorials and assignment ideas in your course or class.

Each page is based on a threshold concept from the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.


CORA (Community of Online Research Assignments) is "an open access resource for faculty and librarians. It is intended to be a collaborative space for adapting and experimenting with research assignments and sharing the success or lessons learned so that others may benefit. The database contains multiple, reliable and reproducible research assignments that do not live as isolated entities, but are enhanced by user feedback in order to build a rich corpus of best practices. There is also a Teaching Toolkit featuring a wide range of resource types including pedagogy/theory, assessment, librarian blogs, classroom activities, technology tips, subject guides, citation tools, and information literacy tutorials." In the Toolkit under "Resource Type" please note the Pedagogy/Learning theory resources, which include conference materials, & scholarly articles on teaching and learning.
