Information Skills 

The library team provide training and one-to-one support to develop your information and research skills, and we have created a series of self-directed modules featuring videos to watch, information to read and activities to try out new skills.

For support in any of these areas, contact the library team or book a one-to-one supervision using our Booking Form.

Many of our Information Skills modules lead to the award of various Skills for the Informed Engineer Digital Badges, which you can then share on social media, LinkedIn etc.
