Information Literacy among Graduate Students in Kuwait University's College of Education
Alkhezzi, Fahad; Hendal, Batool
Education for Information, v33 n4 p231-246 2017
This quantitative study examined the information literacy skills among graduate students in the College of Education at Kuwait University. The study's aim was to investigate the level of information literacy among the selected students, including their awareness, skills, and information needs, as well as the college's role in supporting this population. The overall results showed that the students in the sample had only modest skills relative to their position as graduate students. In particular, the results also indicated a lack of skills regarding the use of most library services and facilities, which sheds light on the college's role in disseminating an awareness of information literacy. The authors recommend that the college library be more engaged in the education process.
