Information literacy is fundamental in the research process

What is information literacy?
According to American Library Association, information literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyse, and use information.

Why is it important?
Information overload phenomenon has become an issue in our society. The complexity of information formats and delivery channels has made this even more severe. As such to equip students with a set of skills to deal with information is imperative.

Elements of information literacy skills:

  1. Identify information needs
  2. Searching and locating the information
  3. Evaluating the information
  4. Organising and use of information

Information Skills Workshop

Upon lecturers' request, Librarians teach information skills to students through Information Skills Workshop. Workshops such as referencing skills, information sources and evaluating sources are also conducted, which students can attend outside of classroom learning.
