MUAST DURA (Institutional Repository)
Institutional Repositories are digital collections capturing and preserving the intellectual output of a single or multi-university community to provide a compelling response to two strategic issues facing academicinstitutions:
– as a natural extension of academic institutions’ responsibility as generators of primary research seeking to preserve and leverage their constituents’ intellectual assets; and
– as one potentially major component in the evolving structure of scholarly communication.
Information Literacy Skills
Traditionally, Literacy meant the ability to read and write. In this day and age, there are various types of literacy, for example, audiovisual literacy, print literacy, computer literacy, media literacy, web literacy,
financial literacy, functional literacy and library literacy. Information literacy is a combination of all these concepts but goes beyond them.
