Information literacy in the workplace
Thanks to RSC Wales for the following information.
The Welsh Information Literacy Project has just issued some new resources which will be very useful for those who wish to understand or promote the importance of information literacy skills in the workplace.
Information literacy, defined as “knowing when and why you need information, where to find it, and how to evaluate, use and communicate it in an ethical manner” underpins many of the skills needed in the workplace and is an important aspect of student employability.
The new resources from the Welsh Information Literacy Project are available here and the Project’s overarching Information Literacy in the Workplace pages will be useful reading and advocacy tools for staff in a variety of sectors and roles, for example those focussed on the Welsh Higher Education enhancement themes of working in and for employment.
Thank you to the Welsh Information Literacy Project for making these resources available in both English and Welsh. Hard copies are also available.
The Welsh Information Literacy project is now located at Coleg Llandrillo and contact details are available at http://library.wales.org/en/information-literacy/contacts/.
