Tips for Students

Being “information literate” means that you are able to locate a variety of information resources for your assignment efficiently and effectively and able to evaluate and use these resources effectively. Information literacy is not learned in a single library session. It is the product of many research assignments and library instruction sessions throughout your university career.

Mastering information literacy competencies can help you in a couple of practical ways:

  • You will save time in doing your research.
  • You will learn to use high-quality resources that will lead to better grades.
