In response to the large number of students needing library instruction, the Digital Information Literacy Office at the University of Texas at Austin created TILT (Texas Information Literacy Tutorial). Designed to teach a progression of skills, students learn and practice basic information literacy concepts through problem-based interactions. Integrating TILT into the existing freshman library instruction programs required adjustments by both faculty and library staff. Composition students take the tutorial before attending an assignment-driven library session; as a result they are more prepared for advanced research. TILT is promoted by the administration as a library initiative to support both undergraduate and distance education. While there have been some drawbacks, overall benefits and positive impacts are discussed. Suggestions for future development of the tutorial in collaboration with other individuals and institutions are included.
