Information Literacy Tutorials 

Empower learners with interactive, bite-sized instruction on research skills, critical thinking, and citation best practices that you can share anywhere (without having to clone yourself).

Learner Reports 

Don’t settle for a checkbox approach to instruction. Measure mastery concepts and skills for customers and library staff with reports that show learning outcomes for interactive elements like quizzes, activities, response prompts, polls, and surveys. 


Database Introductions 

Niche Academy has already created and continually maintains up-to-date introductions to databases from vendors like EBSCO, Gale, and JSTOR, so you don’t have to waste time and effort creating them from scratch.
