Abstract

This study examined students' learning information skills as perceived by seven female students in one Malaysian university. Students perceived the phenomenon as students participating in information practices that enable them to complete their classroom assignments. Following the perception, the students engaged with their classroom and peers to enable them to participate in the practices. Underpinning the perceptions is students' personal beliefs about learning; characterized by meaning, practices, community and identity. The findings are useful to assist higher education communities to facilitate the transformation process of female university students into knowledge creators as required by the Malaysian Qualification Framework.
