2nd Research and Information Literacy Skills in the Workplace Seminar

CPUT Bellville Campus

The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) Libraries will be hosting a two-day seminar on 2-3 November 2022, CPUT Bellville campus, in order to bring together industry partners, academics and librarians to discuss issues related to Research and Information Literacy Skills in the Workplace.

As we focus on preparing our students for industry one of the important aspects besides their chosen fields is the ability to research and use information in the workplace. It is also important that industry and libraries have a dialogue regarding information skills in the workplace to ensure the academic sector, including academic libraries, understand the nature of these requirements

The purpose of this Seminar is therefore to have open discussions between librarians, academics and industry partners with regards to research and information literacy skills within the workplace. Through this engagement we are hoping that members of industry can help us to ensure that we know and understand what skills are needed and how these skills are used within the workplace. This dialogue will inform the broader university community to improve and enhance curriculum development in information literacy so that we can produce graduates who can make positive impact within the workplace.
