Abstract

Beyond the traditional role of acquiring, organizing, disseminating and preserving information, librarians are called to teach strategies in information retrieval, evaluation and usage. Hence, this article gives an account of a partnership developed between Library and Faculty of Engineering (FoE), University of Moratuwa. This partnership called for an extended role of teaching information literacy skills for new entrants not limiting to the orientation programme.

Key words: user education; information literacy, university libraries, library services
