How to Research: Home

Help finding and evaluating resources

Why is this important to me?

Becoming information literate is an important part of your University experience.

Information Literacy is the ability to find, use and evaluate information.  These skills will enable you to produce better academic work, can be used in everyday life and will be valuable in increasing employment opportunities.

The resources in this guide can help improve your information literacy skills.  If you require more help we encourage you to make an appointment with your Faculty Librarian.
