The Research Tutorial is your key to research success!

Key

COM Library’s research tutorial introduces COM students to college level research. It is a requirement for all English 1301 classes, which in turn is required of nearly all COM majors.

The Research Tutorial is actually a series of LibGuides. You must read each one to get the answers for the quiz.

     

    The Tutorial Works!

    After reading the tutorial, 91% of COM students said they learned something new about college level research. Databases topped the list about which students felt they learned the most, at nearly 80%. Over 60% of the students said they learned something new about the catalog, eBooks and research, while about 50% said they learned something new about the Internet and Information Ethics.

    • "I wish I had known some of this information last year. I think this Research Tutorial should possibly be a part of the new student orientation, or possibly a requirement for all English 1301 students. I did not realize so much was available at the COM Library, specifically at the Library website. I'm not even sure that all the teachers in other areas even know it exits. Searching for full text scientific articles would be so much easier with the COM databases. Thank you!"
