First-Year, Transfer, and Honors Seminars: Research Strategies

This guide provides additional resources for the information literacy modules in UNI 101, UNI 201, and HON 110, for both students and instructors.

About the Modules

The information literacy component of your course includes content created by librarians, instructional designers, and UNI instructors to introduce students to academic research in a scaffolded, adaptable way. Each lesson plan (or for HON 110 instructors, the optional Canvas module) addresses a different phase of the research process and is intended to help students think critically about research.

We are honored to be the recipients of the American Library Association's 2024 LIRT Innovation in Instruction Award for this program!

If you have questions about how to adapt this content to your course, please contact Brittany O'Neill, Information Literacy Librarian.


Have questions or want ideas for how to integrate information literacy in your course? Consult your librarian!

We are also available to help your students with their research needs.

Visit the Research Support tab to submit questions or book a one-on-one consultation with a librarian.
