About the project

The aim of the project is to develop information literacy education modules for PhD students. The modules will be tailored to this target group by taking into account their information searching behaviour and information needs, as documented in the existing literature and as revealed by the project own findings. The modules will contain open access online resources and teaching portfolios for seminars within PhD programmes. The project will be run as a collaboration between five nordic academic libraries and is mainly funded by Norwegian ABM-utvikling.
