Student guide to “Information Literacy”

If you have ever heard us library folk use the term "information literacy" but not really known what we mean by that, here are a few things to give you a student perspective.

The CILASS Student Ambassador Network have put together an excellent guide on Tips for Information Gathering.

Xpress Radio at Cardiff University have recorded a series of podcasts in a Student Survival Guide To Writing A Good Essay. The podcasts cover topics such as 'Quality control: information to use and avoid' and 'Going beyond the reading list: finding good web sites' and include tips from experts as well as student experiences.

And for a highly informative(!) student virtual tour of the Information Commons, try the IC Girls video!

As ever, leave a comment if you'd like to get in touch.
