Hartness Library is committed to supporting information literacy at the Community College of Vermont and Vermont Tech.
What is the Information Literacy Graduation Standard?
The Vermont State Colleges have instituted graduation standards for all Associates and Bachelor’s degree candidates in order to assure that VSC graduates attain essential skills for success in the workplace and beyond. These standards include Oral Communication, Quantitative Reasoning, Writing, and Information Literacy.
The Information Literacy Tutorial (TILT)
TILT is a tutorial designed to help students become familiar with concepts and terminology related to search strategy, evaluating and citing sources, and understanding how to use information for academic work. The tutorial is interactive and consists of modules covering each of the four standards outlined in the VSC Information Literacy Graduation Standard. Learn more about using TILT and Canvas-based TILT quizzes.
Note: If you are a student who has been assigned to complete TILT as part of a course, please check Canvas before accessing it here. There may be links to specific TILT modules and accompanying quizzes to test what you have learned on your course page.
Faculty can consult their Library Liaisons at CCV or Vermont Tech for more information about using TILT and other Hartness Library tools in their courses.
