STS Information Literacy Committee members selected tutorials that address one or several of the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Science and Engineering/Technology (SE/T) and a few tutorials that address the more general Information Literacy Framework. Omitted from this list are tutorials where the sole purpose is to demonstrate or instruct in the use of a specific resource—How to Search in PubMed, CINAHL, etc.  

Committee members began collecting information literacy tutorials that address the S/ET standards in the fall of 2007, searching the Web generally, as well as the websites of college and university libraries. The list was then updated and refined in the spring of 2015, and a further refresh was begun in 2021. By its nature, this list will remain a work in progress. It is not exhaustive, nor is it intended to be. Our object is not to create a catalog of all SE/T tutorials, but to find and share useful examples.

Also, these resources are teaching tutorials intended for instructing students, not "how to teach" tutorials intended to instruct instructors.  Discovering and collecting tutorials on how to teach is a future project that STS-IL will seek to address in 2022.
