Eastern Michigan University (EMU) Research 101 Tutorial

Over the summer of 2012, I completed an internship with Eastern Michigan University's Halle Library, during which I collaborated on the project of redesigning their Research 101 tutorial.

The existing tutorial, aimed at teaching undergraduates information literacy skills, was outdated in terms of content, visual design, and accessibility standards. I spent my time working with the librarians currently in charge of the tutorial to improve it in all areas. I rewrote and reorganized content and code to help update the tutorial for the future.

There were still changes remaining to be made when my internship was complete, so the redesigned tutorial has not yet gone live. However, screenshots of the redesign are below.
