  "abstract": "<p>Information literacy is seen as a key competency in working and everyday<br />\nlife. For library and information science (LIS) students information literacy is<br />\na core competency and taught in many LIS university programs. One challenge<br />\nherewith is to mediate these skills in the best way. This paper tries to<br />\nanswer the question, how students cope with different learning methods and<br />\nto which extent they foster the learning of information literacy skills. Four<br />\nlearning methods were applied in a retrieval course. The paper introduces the<br />\ncourse design and the applied methods. For the evaluation the participants<br />\nfilled out online surveys, one of them measured the expectation and perception<br />\nrates based on the idea of the Servqual concept. The results show that<br />\nspecific learning methods can be appropriate for teaching information literacy<br />\nskills. Yet, the implementation of the learning methods could be approved<br />\nbecause students were not satisfied in all matters. Implementing<br />\nlearning methods in future courses should come with changes in the process<br />\nof introducing these methods to the students and with more information<br />\nabout the purpose of applying these methods.</p>",
