The library provides Information Literacy skills programmes and resources tailored to suit Broad General Education (S1-S3) and Senior Phase (S4-S6) requirements. We provide support with transferable skills such as research, note-making, resource analysis and evaluation, and referencing: skills which are sought after by colleges, universities and employers.
