Over the past two years, Western Libraries has created numerous online, video tutorials with the intent of helping students grasp various information literacy concepts. These video tutorial are mounted on Western’s YouTube channel, and on Western Libraries’ website. Tutorial topics were determined by identifying recurring Information Literacy issues, by examining existing library instruction material, and by surveying faculty. The tutorials utilize various styles. While many tutorials teach concepts, some teach specific library tools. Our poster includes a summary report of assessment results.
