AbstractThis thesis deals with a specific way of teaching information literacy: The library online-tutorial. After giving an introduction into information literacy or rather the teaching of information literacy, the author tries to design a typology of the online tutorial considering the context of e-learning. Furthermore, the work provides a survey of the current situation at German academic libraries concerning the use of tutorials. A crucial part of the thesis comprises the analysis and evaluation of three selected tutorials, which emerge as especially exemplary and forward-looking. Beforehand, a catalogue of criteria for the analysis and evaluation of the tutorials has been depicted. The master’s thesis shows that online-tutorials can be an efficient and effective way of teaching information literacy. This does not imply that the reference or teaching librarian will be completely replaced. At the same time, it becomes evident that in spite of some outstanding tutorial projects, the German academic libraries look after online-tutorials rather reluctantly. Lack of cooperation and fear of high expenses have to be seen as the main obstacles for the widespread use of tutorials.
