Library:Library Tutorials

From UBC Wiki

This page contains a list of Library tutorials in all formats (e.g. video, print, textual, etc.) and subject areas, with links to their original location or platform of creation. All tutorials regardless of format and platform have also been added to UBC's LibGuides systems as 'placeholder' guides and tagged appropriately; LibGuides API utility is then used in order to pull the content into the appropriate section(s) of the UBC Library Tutorials portal.

The purpose of this portal is to provide researchers a list of library tutorials on a particular concept (e.g. Evaluating Information Sources) or subject area. This website excludes research guides which assist researchers in finding resources on a particular subject (e.g. Anthropology, Biology, etc.).
