    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;Information literacy is seen as a key competency in working and everyday&lt;br /&gt; life. For library and information science (LIS) students information literacy is&lt;br /&gt; a core competency and taught in many LIS university programs. One challenge&lt;br /&gt; herewith is to mediate these skills in the best way. This paper tries to&lt;br /&gt; answer the question, how students cope with different learning methods and&lt;br /&gt; to which extent they foster the learning of information literacy skills. Four&lt;br /&gt; learning methods were applied in a retrieval course. The paper introduces the&lt;br /&gt; course design and the applied methods. For the evaluation the participants&lt;br /&gt; filled out online surveys, one of them measured the expectation and perception&lt;br /&gt; rates based on the idea of the Servqual concept. The results show that&lt;br /&gt; specific learning methods can be appropriate for teaching information literacy&lt;br /&gt; skills. Yet, the implementation of the learning methods could be approved&lt;br /&gt; because students were not satisfied in all matters. Implementing&lt;br /&gt; learning methods in future courses should come with changes in the process&lt;br /&gt; of introducing these methods to the students and with more information&lt;br /&gt; about the purpose of applying these methods.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
