Information literacy for staff and researchers
- Are you confident you can find the published literature on your research topic?
- Can you easily locate something you've read and reference it accurately in your papers?
- Do you have the latest research at your fingertips?
- Do you know who is citing your publications?
The information landscape is constantly changing. We can help you keep your information literacy skills up-to-date so that you stay on top of research in your field.
If you have recently joined Cardiff University, your subject librarian will be in touch to arrange a one-to-one or group session to welcome you to Information Services and discuss your area of research.
Further one-to-one help is available at any time and suggestions for tailored sessions for research groups and Schools are always welcomed. Just contact your subject librarian.
The Information Services for Researchers web pages also provide links to useful resources, guides and training.
