Library Tutorials for New ODU Students

This guide contains information about tutorials for new ODU students and how they can access them.

About the Tutorial: An Introduction to Using the ODU Libraries

This interactive tutorial is designed to introduce new students to the resources and services provided by the ODU Libraries. The tutorial takes 20-30 minutes to complete.

The goals of the tutorials are for students to:

  • Identify ways of getting research help from the ODU Libraries
  • Identify library services that can be used on and off-campus to assist students with their research and studies
  • Become familiar with library spaces and how to use services available within those spaces

This tutorial can be accessed via a Blackboard Organization (see below), or can be added to your course in Blackboard. If you would like to give students a grade for completion, they can complete a 2 question reflection survey after completing the survey that can be emailed to you with the student name in the subject line. Please contact Lucy Wittkower, lrush@odu.edu, if you would like to receive notification when your students have completed the tutorial reflection.
