Busitema University Library received funding from the Engineering Information Foundation (EiF) of New York, United States. The grant focuses on enhancing communication and the use of information in engineering. Thus, the goal of this project is to incorporate information-seeking in the engineering curriculum as an essential component in delivering engineering education at Busitema. This will be achieved through implementing a disciplinary-based information literacy e-curriculum for teaching engineering courses as a novel approach to online teaching and learning, where the responsibility for teaching engineering courses is shared between the lecturer and the librarian rather than being limited to the lecturers.
