This article begins by outlining significant changes which are taking place in the Irish university research environment. It goes on to briefly describe a project to identify postgraduate generic skills, necessary in this new research environment, which the Deputy Librarian of the National University of Ireland (NUI) Maynooth led. Following on from this, a generic skills module for postgraduates in science and engineering was designed and delivered by the science librarian and the faculty member assigned to developing a programme of generic skills for postgraduates in the sciences; this module is introduced. The article concludes with a reflection on the issues/challenges in providing generic information-literacy modules to postgraduates, in a time of a radically changing research environment in Irish universities.
