Library Tutorials: All Tutorials

A list of the online tutorials available from the Trent University Library.


It's up to individual students to learn how to use the Library and its resources.  The tutorials on this page are here to help.  Take the time to read them early in your studies, to save time and frustration later on.  An estimated reading time is provided for each one, but this is only an estimate. Take the time you need to understand the concepts.

Navigate through tutorials using the tabs at the top of each page.  In some cases there are two levels of tabs - be sure to read them all.

The first time you read these, you should follow the order of the pages. After that you can always return to a particular page for a refresher. On the next page find links to specific sections of tutorials.

You may be required to read some of these tutorials for an online course in Library Skills; in this case there will be a test to ensure you understand how to apply what you've learned.  All tests will be in LearningSystem courses (listed in myTrent).
