Library Research Essentials (LRE)

Library Research Essentials (LRE) is a short Brightspace tutorial designed to help learners understand the principles of library research and build basic library research skills. It has 3 sections: concepts, planning, and searching.

Students and other LRE users

Access LRE by self-enrolling in Brightspace. After you enroll, you'll see it listed under "My Courses" on your Brightspace home page.

LRE is an independent learning resource. You're not required to complete it unless you've been assigned to do so by your course instructor.
