InfoSkills for Social and Behavioral Sciences

InfoSkills @ TiU

Social and Behavorial Sciences


The university library welcomes you to InfoSkills, a tutorial intended for first-year and pre-master's students of  the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences (TSB). The tutorial has been designed to help you master basic information skills and get you started with using the library. 

But what are information skills and why do you need them? There are multiple definitions of information skills, but ultimately it’s about being able to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and effectively & ethically use the needed information.

InfoSkills is divided into five modules, each with its own set of learning objectives, along with a final test for students who must complete InfoSkills as part of their program.  

We strongly recommend that you go through the tutorial chronologically since the different parts are connected and build on one another. Estimated time for the tutorial and the test to be completed is three to four hours.

The InfoSkills tutorial will remain available as a reference resource throughout your study.
