Cardiff University information literacy podcasts

Cardiff University have released a series of six podcasts focusing on improving essay writing for university students:

The podcast is called "Student Survival Guide to Writing a Good Essay" and has been created in conjunction with the University's student radio station.  The six short episodes feature interviews with students, academic staff and librarians on topics such as:

  • What makes a good essay?
  • Quality control: information to use and avoid
  • Going beyond the reading list: finding good web sites
  • Going beyond the reading list: discovering books and journals
  • Getting your references in order
  • Meeting the deadline

The podcasts, which are hosted on Xpress Radio, are currently organised by date rather than by topic, making individual episodes less easy to find than they might have been.  Apart from that fairly minor gripe, this looks like an interesting approach to raising information literacy skills.
