What is Information Literacy and why is it important?

Information Literacy is a key attribute of The Sheffield Graduate. It means knowing when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to use and communicate it. Our Information Literacy web pages include a video explaining why academic staff say it is important. 

Find out how information literacy can help you with writing assignments and conducting research. The pages are split into useful sections to support you at different stages: Getting started, Writing assignments, Research skills, and Employability.

The Getting Started page has some links to some of our tutorials on effective note taking, understanding your reading list and effective note taking. There is also a short video that explains what your subject librarian can do for you
