Open Information Literacy Course

The Open Information Literacy Course is a self-guided, openly-available course in Canvas designed to help students improve their library research skills. Anyone may enroll in the course. The course takes about 40 minutes to complete and covers topics such as: 

  • Developing research questions and search terms 
  • Evaluating information 
  • Making effective use of sources

The course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end of each of its five modules. Students may complete the entire course or focus on particular modules. If you would like to use the course in your class and receive student quiz scores, contact us at and provide a class roster. 

We also have the ability to customize a copy of the course and tailor it to your specific assignments or class needs. If you are interested in exploring this further, please get in touch and let us know how we can help.
