Self-Directed Learning

For those who are studying from off-campus, who are not available to come to the Library when our training events are on, or if you simply prefer to work at your own pace, we have made available a suite of online tutorials aimed at providing you with the Information Skills that are essential to successful study or research at University. 

Embedding Information Literacy in the Curriculum

The Library is committed to ensuring that all our students gain the lifelong skills of Information Literacy.  We believe that these skills are best delivered within the context of the student's academic programme of study.  Academic staff wishing to find out more, please see our Guide to Integrating Information Literacy into the Curriculumor our short guide to Embedding Information Literacy into the Curriculum.  Contact the Academic Skills Team if you would like to discuss embedding information skills provision into your academic programme or module.
