Sažetak

The goal of this research was to investigate which library and information literacy skills first-year undergraduates at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Osijek have already acquired before enrolment since various aspects of library and information literacy skills are embedded in Croatian national elementary and high school curricula. A print survey consisting of 12 questions was conducted on the first-year undergraduate population of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Osijek at the point of their first visit to the library in the beginning of the academic year 2017/18. The questions were related to educational background, preferences and habits in information sources usage and attitudes toward these sources, origins of library and information literacy skills, self-estimate of individual aspects of library and information literacy skills and knowledge concluding with several questions testing the real library and information literacy knowledge. 81 responses were collected, that is 27% of the first-year undergraduate population. The data were processed by SPSS. The results of the survey revealed that respondents felt more often educated in library and information literacy by their teachers, colleagues and family members during elementary and high school than by their school librarians. For their assignments they used most frequently Internet sources, followed by teacher advices, AV materials, books and journals. According to their self-estimates, less developed aspects of library literacy skills turned out to be OPAC subject searches, call numbers and shelf arrangement of the books. Following, these aspects of library literacy should gain more attention in future library and information literacy sessions in the Library which presents a great help to teaching librarians while developing and preparing their training sessions.
