Welcome to Golemon Library! In order to help you with your study skills, the Library has created these resources, broken into topical modules. Each module offers four or five short videos, followed by additional information. If you view the modules in Canvas, they also include five question quizzes.
Many faculty require one or more of the tutorials based on their needs. The quizzes have to be taken on Canvas for the answers to be recorded, so please visit your Canvas and accept the Library Course. All students are enrolled automatically when they register.
In addition to the Canvas videos, there are links to supplemental information. For example, Module 1.6 is called Using the A to Z list. In it you will find links to our databases and how to use specific databases. If you just need something specific, look in the related module:
