Information literacy

Banner image

You use information skills every day: when searching for your next holiday destination, the weather or the news. You are only information literate if you can systematically collect, assess, process and present information with an inquisitive and critical attitude. That means that you know:

  • how and where to find good information;
  • how to determine the quality and reliability of information;
  • how to process the information in your reports.

You can learn these skills in the Brightspace module Smart searching - information skills in higher education(opens in new tab).

You can use the literature search plan to work systematically.

For more information about our products and their application in education please contact Valeria Alba (opens in new tab)or Rensje Wicherson(opens in new tab).
