Learning Modules


Librarians at AUS have created online tutorials (Learning Modules) to help students with the entire research process.

These learning modules include short videos, quizzes and information to help students:

  • Define their research needs
  • Apply search strategies
  • Evaluate sources
  • Analyze and synthesize content
  • Present their findings

Consider linking the modules to your ilearn course.






LibGuides (or subject guides) are lists of recommended library resources built by the library for the courses that you teach.  They are extremely popular resource for students beginning their research assignments / projects, and they can easily be linked directly to your ilearn course. 

Many of our LibGuides receive over 500 hits each semester!

Take a look at the list of growing LibGuides and consider contacting your Liaison Librarian for more information.
