Information literacy skills

During your studies and in your subsequent career, you will need to develop expertise in finding, evaluating and using information effectively and ethically. That expertise is often called ‘information literacy’, or perhaps more narrowly, 'library and information skills'.

What is Information Literacy?

An information literate individual can:

- recognise and articulate a need for information
- distinguish ways in which the information need may be addressed
- construct strategies for locating information
- locate and access information
- compare and evaluate information obtained from different sources
- use information appropriately and ethically.
