Information literacy <ul><li>&quot;First-year students are often unaware of the existence of library subscription databases and there is evidence that some students are not able to differentiate between a journal and a journal article, or to understand why they need to refer to journals.&quot; p. 27 Gurney, L. J., & Wilkes, J. (2008). Creating a library presence in online units. Australian Academic and Research Libraries , 39 , 26-37. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Martin and Williamson (2003) give evidence that even after preliminary information skills training, students make poor use of the wide range of subscription and other higher-education funded electronic information sources and gateways … they are very difficult to wean off a Google habit.&quot; p. 52 Bent, M. J., & Stockdale, E. A. (2009). Integrating information literacy as a habit of learning - assessing the impact of a golden thread of IL through the curriculum. Journal of Information Literacy , 3 , 43-50. </li></ul>
