Describes a research project based in Glasgow Caledonian University Library. Funded by the Enterprise in Higher Education, the project surveyed the library′s instruction programme in information‐seeking skills, with particular reference to the future information needs of undergraduate students and part‐time students. A group of part‐time management students and a third‐year undergraduate biology class were given questionnaires and participated in discussions about their information requirements for study and employment. The use of external information in 11 organizations was also surveyed, so that the future needs of students could be ascertained. The research has led to more flexibility in the Library′s information skills seminars and to a heightened awareness of the need to include information and research skills within academic courses.
