Guarantee+: Information Literacy Milestone 1

Milestone 1: Novice Information Literacy Learners module/tutorial, part A and B for the Guarantee+ program

About the Information Literacy Guarantee+ Milestone 1

Hello and welcome to the Libraries Information Literacy Milestone 1 guide and module for the OHIO Guarantee+ program. This module is designed in two parts, part A and B, both parts will need to be completed to achieve your Milestone 1: Novice Information Literacy Learners for the Guarantee+ Program.

Directions for Students:

  • If you are registered in a UC course, both parts of the module will be integrated into your classes so you will be prompted when you need to complete each tutorial.
  • If you are not in a UC course, you will need to complete both parts of the module in the first semester of your first year ideally by week 9 of the semester. Your advisor should be tracking that progress.

On the tabs to the left, you will find both Part A and Part B tutorials that will need to be completed. Part A covers ways to better your search skills and part B will discuss the research process more in-depth. Each tutorial will ask you questions along the way and at the end of each tutorial you will find a Certificate of Completion to be uploaded to either your professor through Blackboard or your advisor.
