Now you will practice searching for books and other materials using Basic Search in the library catalog.

  • Read the directions on the left-hand side of the screen.
  • Actively search on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • After completing an activity, use the arrow button to move forward.
  • Follow the instructions carefully. Do NOT use the "Back" button on your browser during this part of the module, because it may move you out of the tutorial.

INFO or ANSWER buttons are links to pop-up boxes with additional information or answers to questions. Always click on them as you work through the instructions.

The Practice Assignment:

Let's say you're interested in finding information about cloning and its ethical impact on society. You will use these terms to search, but in a real search experience you may need to use other similar words such as genetic engineering, morality, values, etc.
