Your WR60 Tutorial

In this lesson for WR60 students, you'll be asked to:

  • read short passages,
  • watch a video,
  • and participate in activities.

Once you complete the tutorial, all of this should help you feel more comfortable defining and identifying different source types. These skills will help as you progress at COCC and are asked to incorporate reliable, quality sources into your writing. 

If at any point you have questions about this tutorial or using library resources, you can contact a COCC librarian through various help options at this link or by emailing the Instruction Librarian directly at

Let's get started by doing two, short readings summarizing some sources you might encounter for class...or you might encounter them when doing your own searches to learn more about a hobby, look up the weather, and see what's happening in the world.

You can click on the PDF icon to open the readings in a new window and download it to your own device, or read it on this page (make sure to scroll down!)

Now that you're familiar with some common source types, it's your turn to share! Click the button below and add a source you frequently use. This  can be a source you just read about or one you felt like was missing from the readings. After sharing, you should see your source pop up in the word cloud below—the more popular the source you shared, the larger it will be!
