Interactive Tutorials

The Claremont Colleges Library offers two self-paced, graded, asynchronous tutorials to introduce learners to the research process.

Start Your Research contains 4 modules, each requiring 10-15 minutes to complete. After completing all of the modules, learners will be able to

  • Understand the goal(s) of your assignment
  • Determine the information you need
  • Explain how knowledge is created over time
  • Find the information you need in the library

Exploring Academic Integrity contains six modules, each requiring 10-15 minutes to complete. After completing all of the modules, learners will be able to

  • Discuss the importance of academic integrity at The Claremont Colleges
  • List the best practices for working with integrity
  • Apply your understanding of attribution to your research and assignments
  • Recognize how copyright and fair use affect producing your scholarly work

Please note that while these tutorials have graded quizzes for the learner to get feedback, there is no way for the scores to be recorded. Those who complete the tutorials can generate a certificate of completion, but the individual quiz answers will not be recorded. If you’d like to assign portions of a tutorial, or the tutorials in their entirety, to a class and have the scores recorded for a grade, please send an email with your request to AskALibrarian@library.claremont.edu
