Posted on: March 23, 2021

We use Google every day, but do we really understand why we get certain results? Check out our new asynchronous tutorial, titled “What’s Behind a Web Search?

Students enrolled in HTH 100 can get Passport Event credit for completing the tutorial.

This tutorial was peer-reviewed and accepted into an online resource for use by librarians and instructors around the world! Learn more at PRIMO: Peer-Reviewed Instruction Materials Online.
