As many of you know I’ve recently completed a secondment to Wolfson College, Cambridge as part of the Arcadia Programme at Cambridge University Library. I was working with Emma Coonan the Research Skills and Development Librarian at Cambridge to develop a new curriculum for information literacy. We were focusing on the needs of undergraduate students over the coming five years and have developed a holistic curriculum with ten strands that is designed to be embedded into the academic curriculum. It is not specifically designed to be taught by librarians, although we recognised in many institutions they will be leading the way with information literacy.
If you have any questions about the research then please do get in touch. We hope to run some events to disseminate our research findings further so watch this space! I’m also now back at LSE and filled with enthusiasm after my time away. I just have the small matter of completing my JISC project DELILA before the end of August!
