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

The course is divided into three separate sections. You must complete each section before you will be allowed to move on to the next section. If you cannot complete all of Library Basic Training at once, when you visit the page again, 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, and will be emailed to you. You should save the certificate for future use.

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. 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.

Finding Your Certificate

The original email had the subject line: Hunt Library Library Basic Training Quiz Results, and it contained a link that works for a few months.
