Modern Languages and Cultural Studies

Information Literacy and Scholarly Communication

Run by Lindsay Johnston, Doris Wagner and Céline Gareau-Brennan from the Humanities & Social Sciences Library Unit, this required module provides students with a practical understanding of the nature of professional conversations in their field and how to participate. Students will learn to identify and use a variety of information discovery tools and techniques as they explore the most relevant and appropriate sources of information. Students will complete a variety of tasks tailored to help develop a research inquiry (questions) and acquire strategies that address a broader worldview and recognize information gaps and new investigative methods. Questions might address copyright, open access, public domain, and the economics of information;  proper attribution and citation; ethical management, dissemination, and preservation of information.

NB: Students in first year take both required modules, Grant Writing, followed by Information Literacy & Scholarly Communication.
