However, they do not always make the most of the resources available to them, either because they are not aware of the full range that exists, or because they do not have the basic skills needed to use the resources to full effect. This course will equip delegates with a 'how to guide' for promoting information literacy for their end users, tailored to their particular organisational environment.
