TILT (The Information Literacy Tutorial) at Limestone University: TILT Instructions

About TILT

The Information Literacy Tutorial (TILT) at Limestone University is an interactive, web-based tutorial created by Credo Reference to provide basic research skills.  Content is presented in a fun way, using terms and jargon that appeal to the undergraduate.  The tutorial was adapted from the Texas Information Literacy Tutorial and has been modified for Limestone students and is now referred to as TILT.  Although this tutorial does not teach tools specific to Limestone's library, it is not intended to eliminate the use of library instruction.


TILT is divided into three sections:

  • Module One - identifying and selecting appropriate sources
  • Module Two - searching
  • Module Three - evaluating and citing information

Each section takes less than 30 minutes to complete and concludes with a brief quiz.  Results of the quiz are immediate and can be sent to your course instructor. 

Ideally, TILT would be an assignment to be completed before starting research and before any library instruction.  Instructors can set an acceptable module score.  Students can take the TILT tutorial and quizzes until appropriate scores are achieved.  Instructors can decide which modules they want their students to complete.
