Begin Research

Begin Research is a set of online tutorials that students can work through in order to gain library and information literacy skills. The modules contain self-check progress quizzes and exercises and a scored, 5-question Exit Quiz. If a student includes instructor name when registering for the Exit Quiz and scores an 80% or above, that instructor will receive an email with the student's name and completion information.

Additionally, there is a version of Begin Research that integrates with Canvas. You can read more about this Canvas Commons module by clicking here.  You can see other library tutorials on the topic of plagiarism linked in this LibGuide
