Austin Community College Library Services

Austin Community College Library Services has integrated information literacy tutorials and instruction within many key academic and workforce programs. The Research Tutorials Suite follows student learning outcomes to help educate students about key information literacy concepts, and to increase student success and equity. The tutorials use humor to convey the concepts and include an assessment measure to confirm completion and understanding of the student learning outcome.

“Austin Community College has created an innovative collection of information literacy tutorials that are used as benchmarks for other community colleges across the country,” said award co-chairs Sarah North of Casper College and Julia Mielish of Wake Technical Community College. “These tutorials are mapped to student learning outcomes and cover a broad range of topics and can be used for academic as well as workforce development programs. The committee is excited to see Austin Community College recognized for this significant achievement in information literacy tutorials.”
