TILT Information for Faculty

TILT (located in Blackboard) presents basic research skills which are presented in a fun way, using terms and jargon that appeal to the undergraduate. It does not teach tools specific to Limestone College's Library databases, catalog, or web site, nor is it intended to eliminate the use of library instruction. TILT is an educational service designed to introduce students to research sources and skills.

TILT is divided into three sections (modules):

  • Identifying and selecting appropriate sources
  • Searching
  • Evaluating and citing information
  • Each section takes approximately 30 minutes and concludes with a brief quiz. Results of the quiz are immediate. TILT is available in Blackboard to be used by students any time and/or as often as desired.  Students can use any of the five user names: tiltguest1, tiltguest2, tiltguest3, tiltguest4, or tiltguest5 and password "tryme".  For faculty user names and passwords contact Janet Ward at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

    Using TILT at Limestone should be particularly valuable now that we have Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) courses but it can be used in any course using research.  Ideally, TILT would be an assignment to be completed before doing research and before any library instruction.   You can decide which modules you want your students to complete.  If you chose all three modules, you will eventually get three score summary pages.

    The library would like to be informed if you intend to use TILT in your course(s).  We are also interested in feedback.  Please contact Janet Ward, Web Services Librarian, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
