Information skills training

The media society and the continuing trend towards information overload in everyday life means that strategies are needed in order to cope with the overwhelming amount of information that is available. The workshops offered by the University Library aim to show students how to sift through the volumes of data and information available in the different types of media in order to find the information they need. The University Library offers five modules tailored to the needs of different target groups which will point you in the right direction in your search for information.
