Our Online Library Instruction modules are designed to provide our students with virtual library instruction. To as great extent as possible, these modules provide the instruction content of our traditional, face-to-face instruction sessions conducted in the library.

Students who wish to learn about all aspects of research should work through all seven modules. To begin, click on the the "Next" icon below.

Users who are comfortable with Internet use will likely have few problems working through the modules. If you need additional assistance, visit or call (315-786-2482) the Reference Desk at the library.
