Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who should complete these tutorials?

A: Any transfer student who has received credit at another institution for English 111 or English 200 is strongly encouraged to take the tutorial(s).

Q: Why should I complete these tutorials?

A: As a part of its General Education curriculum, all Meredith College students are expected to become proficient in the area of library research and information literacy. Within both English 111 and English 200 at Meredith, all students participate in an information literacy component of the course which includes completion of an online tutorial, class sessions in the library, and a final research-related assignment. While you may have acquired research skills at your past institutions, you have not learned Meredith's library resources. Completion of this online tutorial exposes transfer students to the fundamental information literacy concepts covered in English 111/200, and ensures that you will be prepared for more advanced concepts in your Information Literacy Thread course and beyond.

Q: When should I complete these tutorials?

A: If you completed English 111 credit at another institution, you are strongly encouraged to complete the ENG 111 tutorial before you begin the information literacy unit in your English 200 course.  You can also take the English 111 final IL test (which is embedded in the IL unit of your ENG 200 Brightspace course), as an assessment of how well you understand these first-level information literacy concepts.  If you completed both your English 111 and 200 credit at another institution, you are strongly encouraged to complete both the English 111 and 200 tutorials before taking the Information Literacy Thread course in your major.

Q: Do I need to confirm with anyone once I have done a tutorial?

A: You do NOT need to confirm with anyone that you have completed the tutorial. When you take the ENG 111 Information Literacy Test in Brightspace, your name and score will be recorded.  If you would like to meet with a librarian to discuss any concepts that are unclear to you, feel free to request an appointment.

Q: Who should I contact if I have questions or problems?

A: If you have questions about the tutorials or information literacy program, contact Jeff Waller, Head of Research and Instruction.
