Information professionals in higher education spend a considerable amount of time teaching information literacy, either through group sessions or more often one-to-one at the enquiry desk in libraries or learning resource centres. To be information literate is empowering, as it means students have the skills to seek out, appraise, evaluate and use information wisely while at university and beyond.

Interesting reading as I spend a considerable amount of time teaching sessions based on the slightly broader theme of digital literacy. Over past two years have also developed and continue to build on a series of online study skills tutorials created to support our large population of mostly part-time postgraduate and CPD students. It's a challenge that I'm actually quite enjoying and hopefully these online resources will improve digital literacy skills, empowering our students while at university and beyond.
