Welcome to the Auraria Library! Navigating Library Research is a not-for-credit course. It was created to help Auraria Campus students and faculty develop their research skills, both in the Library and in the world at large. The skills learned through this course will help you perform research more efficiently in a wide variety of subject areas.

Navigating Library Research was created with funding from CU Online.


For Faculty

Navigating Library Research can be used as a whole, or one unit at a time.  Faculty are encouraged to assign one or more units as part of their courses.

Please note that assignments cannot be submitted directly to the library.  Instead, ask your students to download the assignments and submit them directly to you.

Feel free to contact the Auraria Library Instruction Department for more information.


For Students
