Each Module has the following items:
Videos: Each module contains three video demonstrations that walk through the steps for finding sources, emphasizing the critical thinking and evaluation process of information selection. Demonstrations are brief (usually under three minutes each) and they are offered in the WVM file type, hosted on Mediasite. Watch. Take notes.
Theory: The theory section addresses the underlying concepts behind literature searching for college level writing. For example: how does understanding subject headings help me do a better search?
Skills: The skills section address practical knowledge like narrowing a search with the connector “AND” or finding a call number at the PACLibraries.
Glossary: The glossary section defines information terms
Practice Activity: Once you have watched the videos, and read the theory and skills, you will practice using the skills you have learned.
Quiz: When you are finished with the other activities, you may take the quiz. Each quiz result is recorded. You may take the quiz as often as you need to to receive a passing grade (70%).
Certificate: Once you have completed the quiz with a grade of 70% or more, you may print out the certificate for that module.
