Search for the Skunk Ape: An Information Literacy Quest

Search for the Skunk Ape: An Information Literacy Quest. This is a fun information literacy tutorial created by Florida Gulf Coast University. I think using the skunk ape (AKA bigfoot in Florida) will hold the attention of most students. I sighted bigfoot when I was a teenager in Ohio so I have belief...

From the site:

Search for the Skunk Ape: An Information Literacy Quest" is a self-guided web tutorial that you can use to enhance your library and research skills. Intended for students who are at the beginning of their college education, the tutorial is part of a comprehensive plan the FGCU Library has developed to help our users take advantage of the wealth of resources we provide.

If your instructor is requiring you to complete this tutorial for your class, you will need to create an account. In addition, you will also need to complete a brief survey, take a pre-test, and take a post-test. If you have any problems, you'll find that help is available from our Reference Staff in person, by phone, or by e-mail.

It may be more effective for you to work through the tutorial from beginning to end in one sitting. If you wish, however, you can leave the tutorial and come back to it at your convenience as many times as necessary. If you are completing this tutorial as part of a course assignment, and you log off before you have completed it, the computer will return you to where you left off the next time you log on.
