Before starting these activities, be sure your computer has Macromedia Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave installed. Most Ivy Tech regions have access to the main Virtual Library screens, but if there is a problem accessing your local library, you may be able to access material discussed and assigned below through the Central Indiana Library page more reliably.

IvyTilt Activity 1—Tutorials 1, 2, and 6
For this first library assignment, you will complete three IvyTilt modules. Go to the IvyTilt website at http://faculty.ivytech.edu/~smclaugh/ivytilt/choice.html and select the three modules you are going to do for Activity 1. 1.Starting Smart (Module 1)—This tutorial is an introduction to using the Virtual Library. Review it carefully so you understand the terms that will be used in later modules. 2.Choosing a Topic (Module 2)—This tutorial will help you create workable topics for searches and later writing. Remember—a good topic is not found; it is developed. 3.Citing Sources (Module 6)—Never mind modules 3, 4, and 5 for now. Jump to Module 6 and get some insight into how to cite a borrowed idea in the body of your paper and how to list the source of that idea at the end of your paper. At the end of each module is a brief quiz. The quizzes are self-assessments to see how well you have mastered the information in the tutorial. You should take the quizzes for Modules 1, 2, and 6 and copy and paste the results page for each quiz into a file on your computer once you have scored at least 90% on each quiz. Please note that the library server does NOT keep copies of your quiz results and the library quiz does NOT link directly to...
