In the first part of this program, text and animations help explain the concept of citation, as applied to several types of information sources. Comprehension of citation formats is tested by means of a three-question quiz. In an additional four-question quiz, users view an example citation and choose the most appropriate citation element to use for library catalog searches. A few pages focus on library types (academic, public, school, etc.), sections (book stacks, circulation, reference, etc.), and classification systems (Library of Congress and Dewey Decimal). The presentation finishes with a three-question review quiz.
