Library Research Tutorial for AU Scholars: Begin Here


In this tutorial you will learn how to conduct research --from start to finish-- using the American University Library. This tutorial is composed of 5 sections. Each has its own set of learning outcomes and activities. You can navigate through the tutorial by using the tabs at the top of the screen, or you can use the NEXT and BACK buttons at the bottom of each page.

In each section you will find text and "active" images. In order to fully experience this tutorial, we suggest that you both read the text, and explore the images.
