Getting Started

The EMPOWER information literacy tutorial has been designed to help students understand what information resources are available both in the library and on the Web, how to find them, how to use them efficiently, and how to evaluate them.

Flash logo Before beginning EMPOWER make sure you have a Flash plug-in for your internet browser. You can download the plug-in from http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/

Also, make sure that your browser has Javascript enabled. It is usually enabled by default, but the setting can be changed in your browser's setting options.

EMPOWER is divided into 6 modules. If you are using EMPOWER as part of a Blackboard course you will be prompted to complete a quiz in Blackboard at the end of each module.

EMPOWER also has a glossary of keywords available, and a table of contents to help you navigate. If you have a question about any aspect of EMPOWER click on the HELP link at the bottom of each screen.
