Sheffield was the first school in the UK to become a formal member of the iSchools community, an international group of research-led library and information science departments with special interests in the relationship between information, people and technology. Its largest intakes are in Librarianship (MA) and Information Management (BSc and MSc) and all students on these programmes now take a core module that enables them to gain an understanding of information resources, information needs, information literacy and information-seeking behaviour, including practical skills in searching for, evaluating and packaging information in response to a user query, accessing a variety of sources. This article looks at this module in relation to relating theory to practice, information literacy teaching, and assessing student learning.
