Library Research Tutorials

NOTE:  I am currently updating all of the Education tutorials.  The ones with 2017 are new and reflect the new library webpage, new databases, and new SwoopSearch.

Here are a few tutorials specific to the UT Tyler Library and its resources.  Although the examples used are all from the field of reading, the basic concepts should be applicable to any type of library research in Education.  If you have any additional questions, please email me, or if you need a more immediate response, please call the reference desk at 903 566-7343 or chat via the link on the main page of the library.  At the bottom right of the homepage see the box "Chat is online."
