CRC Library Research Tutorials

Los Rios Librarians have developed a new series of tutorials to help students learn how to be successful researchers. Students will embark on a journey to understand the purpose of research, develop effective research strategies, and familiarize yourself with the Library's primary research tool, OneSearch. They will learn how to select the best sources to meet their research needs and how to avoid plagiarism through proper citation. 

Each tutorial takes between 15-30 minutes and includes reading, video, graphics, practice exercises, and a quiz. After passing the module's quiz with a score of 75% or more, students will unlock a certificate of completion, which can be printed, emailed, or submitted through eLearning course.  Faculty may assign the tutorials (in full or select ones) for credit in their courses or may recommend a tutorial to help a student gain relevant research skills. 

The seven tutorials cover the following topics:

  • What is Research?
  • Getting Started with Research
  • OneSearch Basics
  • Evaluating Sources
  • Avoiding Plagiarism & Citing Sources
  • MLA Style for Community College Researchers
  • APA Style for Community College Researchers
