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. Josť 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 design.
