About this Module

This module should take students around 30 minutes to complete, but may take more or less time, depending on their comfort with research.  The module is meant to stand in for a face-to-face library session for a 100 or 200 level course, during which they would be introduced to or reminded of these concepts as well given time to begin some research in a database (likely Academic Search Complete).  It is impossible in an online setting to actively oversee student database research, the way that a librarian would in an in person session.
