Welcome to LIT!
LIT is your guide to research at Western and beyond. You will learn to save time, find the best sources for your needs, appropriately use and cite sources, keep track of your research, and get more help when you're stuck.
LIT is made up of six lessons, which are each made up of smaller sections or mini-lessons. Along the way, you will try out your new research skills using live information systems - like academic databases and Western Libraries' OneSearch.
Each lesson is followed by a quiz in Canvas that will allow you to check your knowledge. Some classes at Western will even give you points for these quizzes.
