Abstract (up to 200 words):
In a world of rapid technological change and proliferating information resources, librarians are faced with the challenge of helping students navigate the complex information world. While each library system is different, there are a number of information literacy concepts that are common to all. When the librarians at UNC-Chapel Hill created their online Library Research Tutorial, they decided to use a simple, modular design based on the theory of reusable learning objects (RLO). The RLO format enables parts of the tutorial to be reused in other tutorials or customized by other institutions. Librarians at ASU were able to collaborate with UNC-CH to adapt this tutorial for their Freshman Seminar classes. Lisa Stimatz (UNC-CH) will present the process of the development of the tutorial. Joy Gambill (ASU) will talk about the revision process and how the tutorial is being used in the ASU library. Jeff Church (ASU), a Freshman Seminar instructor, will share his personal experience with how the ASU Library Research Tutorial is being used in Freshman Seminar WEB CT classes.
