About the Tutorial Series

The Research Process Tutorial (RPT) series is an tutorial series for students focused on increasing their knowledge of the information cycle and sharpening their ability to locate information required for their academic assignments.

If you would like your students to take the series in a given semester, please email us at library@ucmerced.edu to let us know that you would like your course section(s) added. If your course is added, students can affiliate with your course and you can retrieve their RPT quiz scores. Details are provided below.
