CLIP's grant ended in 2011, and the tutorials have not been updated since then. In September 2015, we unexpectedly lost access to the server hosting the CLIP tutorials. However, we were able to copy the content so you can download the zip files and host the content on your own site. The quizzes can be found there as well. If you have additional questions not answered here, please contact us and we will do our best to answer them. Thank you for your understanding.

The Cooperative Library Instruction Project (CLIP) was a partnership between Chemeketa Community College, Lane Community College, Oregon State University, Western Oregon University and Willamette University whose mission was to design and develop sharable, web-based tutorials to assist in library instruction and information literacy.

CLIP tutorials addressed the larger ideas of information literacy. The collection might look something like an interactive, online information literacy "text book" from which librarians or instructors anywhere can select and use pieces as they choose.

CLIP strove to serve librarians and instructors with different needs and resources. Our tutorials are free, already hosted on the web and ready to be used as they are. Simply copy the URL provided with each tutorial and distribute via websites, email, etc. We also provide source files for those who wish to download, customize and/or locally host the tutorials. See the Use Suggestions page for more info.

CLIP was accepted to the ALA/ACRL Instruction Section’s Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) project. Take a look at this extensive database of instruction resources.
