WHAT ARE INFORMATION SKILLS?


If you have INFORMATION SKILLS, you have the ability to search, find, critical analyze and process on- and off-line information sources. Information literacy has become an essential skill that higher-education students must possess to succeed. As a student you need these skills for assignments, doing research and writing papers, your
theses or research report. In this part of our website we help you to develop your information skills.

You will learn:

  • what steps to go through when searching for information

  • about the different information sources available

  • how to combine search terms and perform searches in the library catalogue, Worldcat, databases, Google Scholar etc.

  • how to assess information and how to record the source reference
