Supporting academic excellence through Library instruction


The mission of the programme is to support academic excellence at the University through information literacy instruction. The term “information literacy” embraces the practical skills, analytical abilities, and attitudes that are necessary for finding and using information in an effective, critical, and socially responsible manner.

These skills are important not only in an academic setting, but also in professional and personal life. Information literacy is essential to lifelong learning, and is therefore recognised in the University’s Graduate Attributes.
