The Library Information Literacy Assignment (LILA) is designed to boost information literacy and refine research skills. Completing this assignment is not only a requirement for English 201A--it should prepare you to be a life-long, knowledgeable consumer of information. 

How do I access the LILA?

Log in to Canvas with your myCuesta username and password, then go to your English 201A course. The LILA instructional content, activities and quizzes are embedded in the course. Your instructor will let you know when to complete them. 

What if I have questions?

First, contact your English instructor because each English 201A instructor incorporates the LILA differently. If you have tech issues or other concerns, reach out to Cuesta Librarian Laurie Buchholz at
