A to Z guide to tutorials for resources and services provided by the LRD.

How To Use

The guide is arranged alphabetically by the resource or concept.

For example, if you wanted to see if there is a tutorial on searching the Academic Search Premier database, you would go to the "Databases ABC" tab. And if you wanted to find tutorials on formatting an MLA-style paper in Microsoft Word, you would go to the "Microsoft Word" tab.

If you need help locating a tutorial, do not hesitate to ask for help -- just use the contact information under my picture there on the right to get in touch.


This guide acts as the portal for many different types of tutorials -- everything from how to search particular databases, like Academic Search Premeir or PsycInfo, to explanations of research techniques and information literacy competencies.

This guide is a work in progress and will be continually updated as new tutorials are created or discovered.  Suggestions for tutorials are always welcome!
