These eight tutorials will not only teach you how to become an A+ researcher but will
develop your information literacy and critical thinking skills. The tutorials follow a set of
CUNY information literacy learning goals and objectives that all students should achieve by the time
they have completed 60 credits.

Spanish translation of the
CUNY Information Competency Tutorials was made possible
by a grant from the CUNY Office of Compliance and Diversity,
Diversity Projects Development Fund. Prof. José Diaz, Hostos
Community College and Prof. George Thorsen, Queensborough
Community College translated these modules into Spanish.
The Hostos Community College
Instructional Technology support center staff migrated all
of the IL Competency modules into a new, more attractive
format as part of a Perkins Grant to provide 24/6 online
tutorial resources to students. A special thanks goes to
Hostos Community College and George Rosa, Elkin Urrea, and
Carlos Victoria for their work on the migration and
