LIBR1000 is an online course available through Canvas aimed to equip first year students with the essential information literacy skills needed to excel during their time at Uni. The course has been developed specifically for Arts and Social Sciences students however, it will benefit all First Years Students especially those with information & digital literacy course requirements.
Almost 70% of students that responded to the course survey in 2019 said that LIBR1000 would be useful for their future studies. Here are some of the things they said:
“One of the best things about this course is I actually applied what I have learned here to my actual study and assessments.”
“The topics were very useful in helping me learn proper citations and how to use Library Search.”
“It allowed me to evaluate my knowledge of referencing and citation as well as what sources to use and when.”
“It provided a good introduction on how to use information literacy most effectively in our studies, and how the library resources facilitate this.”
