Library Basic Training

Course Description

The Hunt Library's Library Basic Training is designed to provide students with a library instruction opportunity similar to classroom instruction. The online course introduces students to the services available, teaches them how to use EAGLEsearch, demonstrates how to access our databases, and provides the steps for requesting items from the Hunt Library.

Course Format

You must create an account to access the training. You do not have to be affiliated with the University to create an account and complete the training. The same account login should be used for the Evaluating Sources training module. The course is divided into three separate sections. You must complete each section in order before you will be allowed to move on to the next section. If you cannot complete all of Library Basic Training at once, logout. When you log back in, the course software will remember where you left off. A quiz will appear after all three modules are complete. Completing and passing the quiz is necessary to receive a certificate of completion. Once the quiz is complete, the certificate will appear on the screen, be emailed to you, and will be accessible the next time you login by clicking on the View Certificate button at the top right.

Course Technical Requirements

Library Basic Training requires the following:

  • Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox, Safari or Chrome

Instructions for Faculty

The Library Basic Training course was designed to impart the same information as found in face-to-face library instruction. After completing the training, students will be emailed certificates of completion in PDF format. If you choose to make this required training for your students, students who have completed the course should be able to supply you with an electronic copy of their certificate of completion.
