Information Literacy


  • Understand their information need and define a research topic;
  • Locate, access and identify the range of resources provided by the Library (print and digital);
  • Apply effective search strategies in order to retrieve accurate and relevant information from those resources for their needs;
  • Evaluate and use that information independently and critically;
  • Cite their sources and use that information in a responsible and ethical manner.


Workshops can help students improve their digital information literacy skills and be more proficient at researching. A research skills workshop can be provided to a class of students or to faculty members upon request. Workshops are ad/hoc and can be tailored to your information needs.

For example a Librarian can discuss any one of these topics:

  • A beginner's run through of any of our subscribed databases;
  • An advanced run through of any of our subscribed databases including advanced search tips;
  • Citing your sources & plagiarism: a Zotero & EndNote software introduction;
  • How to use Libguides
  • How to define a research topic


LibGuides pages are designed for the various needs of the user community and are valuable support tools that can help improve information literacy.
