Information Literacy - AnyQuestions

Any student, any topic, any question

Book a session with Christchurch City Libraries to introduce students to the national online reference service for New Zealand school students, AnyQuestions. One of our librarians will visit your school, introduce students to important information literacy concepts and guide the class through a live demonstration with an online AnyQuestions librarian. Sessions are best tailored to suit a specific class enquiry topic. Students will come away with an awareness of quality online resources and greater confidence evaluating websites and formulating search strategies.

  • School visits available Thursday mornings between 9:30am – 12:30pm. Sessions run for 60 minutes. A reliable internet connection is required.
