Information Literacy - teaching staff
The development of good information literacy skills is essential to enable students to use learning resources effectively.
Why are information literacy skills important?
All new students are offered a basic hands-on induction to Library Services, but it is important that information skills continue to be developed at appropriate points within the programme, and that information literacy in its wider sense is embedded within the curriculum, so that students are confident in carrying out independent research.

What help is available to set this up?
Your Academic Support Team will work with you to develop and deliver Information Literacy and ICT sessions for your students. Your Academic Support Librarian will also provide one-to-one training where required, e.g. for teaching staff and researchers in using information sources, and for dyslexic students.
While students can book places on most of the IT and Information Literacy training programme events, we can also deliver bespoke ICT training to groups of students - contact your Academic Support Team to discuss your specific requirements.
Resources to develop other academic learning skills are also available:
- EndNote is software to help you manage your bibliographic references and create bibliographies easily and automatically. EndNote workshops, aimed at academic and research staff, run throughout the year. EndNote Web is a web-based version of the software and is more suitable for undergraduate-level work. It allows students to save references to a personal account. Find out more about EndNote on our Researchers and our Training pages.
