Information Literacy

Information literacy is the ability to recognise one's own information requirements and to find, procure, evaluate, process, present and use the required information in a legal and responsible manner. It is a key qualification of today's information society, and a decisive factor for success in studying, research and professional life. Its mediation is a core activity of academic and public libraries.

The tasks of ULB's Information Literacy Team include designing, organising and carrying out tours, workshops and consultations. The Information Literacy Team also develops e-learning formats. We are constantly working on improving our offer. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any requests or suggestions for improvement!

Participation in the working group Information Literacy of the Hesse Directors' Conference

Based on a workshop in December 2007 at the University Library Giessen, representatives from Hesse's academic libraries initially opted for a regional network. In February 2014, the Hesse Information Literacy network was transferred to a working group of the Hesse Directors' Conference.

Services for promoting information literacy are core tasks of libraries that can be developed for the future.

The focus is just as much on target group-orientated training concepts based on the latest didactic findings as on the continuous evaluation and testing of new learning and working environments. There is a preference for stronger cooperation in the field of further training and concepts.
