In addition to your course, the Library offers online resources, courses and workshops to help you develop your information literacy.

Information skills for foundation and first year students

During year one, students are expected to be able to identify, locate and evaluate the different resources and types of sources appropriate to their area of study and construct a search strategy using discipline specific keywords and search techniques in the ethical use of information.

This page contains resources that will help you build the information skills required to meet the information literacy learning outcomes for year 1 or level 4. Check the Library learning programme for year two, three and postgraduate students.
