The National Information Literacy Programme (NILP) aims to raise public awareness on information literacy skills in today’s complex information landscape.
NILP created the S.U.R.E. (stands for Source. Understand. Research. Evaluate.) campaign in October 2013 to encourage Singaporeans to adopt good information literacy practices.
In 2015, the S.U.R.E. Campaign launched the “Super S.U.R.E. Show”, a series of public events to educate Singaporeans on the importance of information literacy in an engaging yet informative way. Guest speakers were invited to discuss issues as well as share anecdotes and learning points related to specific themes (e.g. social media). Students, teachers and members of the public were also trained on information literacy, research and using NLB’s online resources.
NLB has also introduced free information literacy workshops to address the information and research needs of professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs) in various organisations.
