Professional and scientific information is the basis of university education as well as scientific research. The ability to find, monitor and process information saves times and increases the quality of the results of studies and scientific research. Libraries are still the main source of primary documents. Nevertheless, currently an access to information is not provided only by classical library catalogues and printed bibliographies. The focus is shifted towards electronic sources and services – data bases on CD-ROMs and network information available by means of the Internet. A necessary precondition for independent effective work with information is knowledge related to processing, storing and looking up information in the electronic systems. The objective of the course is to provide the students with the opportunity to obtain necessary knowledge that will facilitate their orientation in traditional documents, library information sources and service or other information workplaces, including the capability of independent work with electronic sources. The course should enable the students to obtain basic information literacy that will be beneficial not only in the course of their studies at university but also in further studies.
