The role of the student library media assistant is to have a service learning experience. They provide assistance to students and faculty and help with the successful operation of the media center. Through performance-based assignments, media assistants learn Information and Media skills based on the NC Digital Learning Standards. These students are able to develop life-long information skills as a result of this experience.
Tutorials were created by Austin Community College Library Services for their students. Most of the information is applicable to all library users.
After you work your way through the short tutorials, you can take a quiz and review your right and wrong answers.
Tutorials: Choosing A Topic, Identifying Keywords, Finding Background Information, Finding Books & eBooks, Finding Articles, Demystifying Research Articles, Building Research Papers, Evaluating Information, Finding Scientific Information
