Abstract

This Q&A will explore students’ information literacy (IL) skills and the application of these to the workplace. The information literate graduate will have fostered a range of skills and abilities whilst at MMU which can be transferred to their CV, job applications and, ultimately, the workplace. The focus of IL has traditionally been within academia; the ability to define a topic and search effectively, locating academic resources efficiently, the oganisation and communication of such information. But these skills also have a place within employment and CVs, job seeking and applications and interviews can be enhanced if students have an understanding of how they can transfer their academic research skills to the world of work. Of course, such information retrieval skills will have also brought benefit to the students’ curriculum work which in turn should enhance staff‐student academic interaction and facilitate a rewarding learning process.
