You may have read our recent article about LibSmart I, the foundation of our online information literacy course hosted on Learn. If you haven’t, check it out here.
Where LibSmart I provides a solid start in the library and information landscape, we think that LibSmart II offers a great next step for those a little further in their university career.
So what does LibSmart II offer?
You can pick and mix from ten subject specific modules to develop knowledge of a wide range of digital resources. You can also learn specialised or advanced digital search techniques and develop the skills to manage your research literature and data effectively. We recommend you complete LibSmart I before moving on to LibSmart II, as you will build on the foundations developed in the first level of the course as you complete each of your chosen modules.
A brief overview of LibSmart II and its learning objectives
The ten modules which are currently available to study are:
- Business information
- Data mindfulness: finding and managing data for your dissertation
- Digital news sources
- Digital primary sources and digital scholarship
- Finding and using digital images
- Government and Policy Research
- Health information
- Legal information
- Special Collections fundamentals
- Systematic reviews
We estimate each course will take a maximum of 3 hours to complete, and you can select as many or as few as you like. You’ll earn a digital badge for each module you complete to show off your new achievement!
