Council for University Libraries in Finland: Recommendations for IL in higher education:
”There is so many information sources on the Internet and it’s difficult to know which ones are reliable. The course has helped me to evaluate information. This is a very important course”
”The web discussion was useful and gave me the chance to discuss with others and hear their views on ethical matters”
