Information literacy

The Library teaches information literacy in Bachelor and Master programmes.

Information literacy is an academic skill to deal with vast amounts of information. It is about knowing when and why you need information, where you can find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner.*

The Library teaches information literacy in most Bachelor programmes. For Master students, information literacy is offered as one of the modular skills courses YLI-65100 Finding and using literature for your MSc thesis. It is also part of the course YMC-61303 Scientific Skills Training.

PhD students have their own training session.

The Library also develops course materials on the subject. The
e-learning modules used in the MSc and BSc study programmes can be used for self-study as well.
