Embedded information literacy support

Embedded information literacy support:

Information literacy instruction which is incorporated into a taught unit. We have capacity to offer embedded support on a maximum of one module per level, per academic year. Please agree within your course teams where this support is best placed.

Options for delivering this support are outlined below.

Asynchronous Learning

Asynchronous Learning:

Asynchronous delivery enables learners to easily access support at times and places best suited to their needs and may be an ideal solution for students struggling to attend timetabled classes for whatever reason.

Online help produced by the Information Librarians can be embedded in module pages to maximise discoverability. This online provision may incorporate introductory videos covering specific information skills/competencies, such as referencing,  accessing and searching a particular resource, identifying key resources to locate information for a specific assignment or supporting wider transferable research skills.  Videos can be supported by online tutorials/quizzes to further reinforce learning. 


How to access: Please email

Live Teaching Sessions

Live lecture or workshop:

A one-off information literacy training session delivered in class time, recorded where appropriate, can be arranged.  This can be delivered live online or in person in agreement with the Information Librarian delivering the session.

Please note: We are unable to offer multiple/repeat workshops or lectures.


How to access: Please liaise with your Information Librarian



Special circumstances

Unique/Special Circumstances:

For courses which have unique circumstances (i.e modules using a specific information resource), we may be able to offer an additional embedded support intervention, subject to the capacity of the relevant information librarian.
