InfoRhode Tutorials

Welcome to InfoRhode!

These short information literacy tutorials will help you to learn, or to refresh, basic college-level information research skills. They explain how to find, evaluate, and cite books and periodical articles using the University Libraries’ catalog and databases.

You don’t need to watch the tutorials in a specific order, but we have listed them in a way that could guide you through a beginning library research process.

For more assistance, librarians at the Info & Research Help are available to help you find what you need. Stop by the Library, call (401) 874-2653, or click here for live chat assistance.

You can view the tutorials individually below, or as a playlist on YouTube.
