Academic & Information Literacy

Find Your School Librarian

The Western Sydney University’s Academic Literacy Strategy’s purpose is to outline and provide a coherent and integrated approach to academic literacy practice and skills development for our students.

Literacy skills are essential in a wide range of disciplines and occupations. People with strong information and academic skills are better equipped to solve problems, make informed decisions, and adapt to the ever-changing demands of the workplace. Employers look for these skills in their employees.

School Librarians offer a literacy support service that provides a range of activities and resources to help students become confident learners, produce better results, achieve graduate attributes and enhance employability.

We do this by working with you to:

  • Design and develop bespoke learning activities and resources to support academic literacy outcomes
  • Embed and scaffold academic literacies into curricula across the span of your program
  • Deliver academic literacy and information literacy lectures, tutorials, and workshops
  • Provide academic integrity instruction and educative support in cases of academic misconduct
