Information Skills

Information skills are the skills students need to use library- and information-related tools and resources. They range from using the catalogue to find books in the library to finding information on Google.

Queen’s students are offered a variety of forms of support to enable them to develop their information skills. Students who wish to use the library on site are required to attend a library induction, and a suite of videos designed specifically to support our online learning resources has been made available to students on Moodle. Our full-time librarian is available to answer queries, both on site and via phone and email, and offers module-specific classroom support both on site and online at the request of tutors.Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the reading list
