In the first semester of 2002, the Library launched the Information Literacy Programme "Information Literacy @ the USP Library" aimed at developing information skills for lifelong learning. It was renamed Information Research Skills (IRS) in 2013.


What is information literacy?

A set of abilities acquired by individuals to:

  • recognize when information is needed
  • locate information to answer the need
  • evaluate and select the right information by using critical thinking
  • use effectively the needed information to create a product (i.e. an essay, a research paper, or just to make a basic decision)

The USP Library offers a range of user education services to help library users find and evaluate information more efficiently and effectively !
