The Library Detox: 2018

Library Detox Logo white

Happy New Year and Happy New Semester and welcome to the Library Detox.  This is a series of blog posts to promote good information literacy.

Each day for two weeks, starting from the 15th January, there will be a new blog with a simple tip to help you improve your information literacy and make managing your information cleaner and easier for your studies and research in 2018 and beyond.

Over the last few months, Swansea University Information, Services and Systems have been working towards creating an Information Literacy framework. The framework is built on seven skillsets: Identify, Scope, Plan, Gather, Evaluate, Synthesise and Present and it is these skills that the Library Detox will address. Further information on the framework can be found here.

Further information is available from your subject specialist support.
