I.D.E.A.: Home

I.D.E.A. is an acronym to help guide you through the research process.

More Information:

Information literacy is the ability to "recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information." In an effort to promote information literacy, the Trible Library has developed a number of modules intended to educate users on various information literacy concepts.

How to Use:

The modules are divided into four groups, based on the acronym I.D.E.A. - Identify, Determine, Evaluate, and Apply. Each group contains a number of modules that address specific information literacy topics, e.g. the peer review process. The modules consist of short tutorials, 5-15 minutes, and can be reached either through a link or an 'embed code.' (If the embed code is copied and pasted to another place, such as Scholar, the module will function within that site and allow users to use the module without visiting another site.) Because each module covers a stand-alone topic, they can be used individually, as well as combined to create an improvised curriculum.

*If you're a faculty member and would like to assign these modules to your students, please contact Matt Shelley for more information.
