Project Development
The Chabot Searchpath is made possible due to funding from a Basic Skills grant dedicated to improving students' online research skills, especially for those taking Distance Education courses.  Funding provided additional hours for Norman Buchwald, Information Literacy and Technology Librarian, to revise, add content, and incorporate new lessons, making this tutorial suitable for Chabot College Students.

We would like to acknowledge our debt to Elaine Anderson Jayne, Maira Bundza, Swati Narra, David Kohrman, and Streethran Kupusamy at Western Michigan University for creating the original Searchpath.  This tutorial is excellent for community colleges.  We would also like to acknowledge Judith Arnold and Patricia VanderMeer for designing TILT, another tutorial that inspired the creation of Searchpath.  [Will include thanks to DVC and East Los Angeles College creators, here]

At Chabot College, we give thanks to the Chabot-Las Positas Community College Board of Trustees and the Distance Education Sub-Curriculum Committee at Chabot College for the approval of funding of this project.
