Sharing information literacy resources to support researchers

Last week Nancy Graham and I presented at the ALISS Summer Conference about the CoPILOT community of practice, and how by sharing information literacy resources as OERs librarians are really advocating open education and acting as exemplars to other teachers. We talked about the background to the CoPILOT Committee being established – it is a sub group of the CILIP Information Literacy Group. We also talked about the DELILA project, the survey of librarians we completed last year and the CoPILOT project which was a 2 month project funded by JISC and the HEA to explore whether some of the OERs we created during the DELILA project could be used in an international context. Other than a fire alarm going off shortly into our talk, it was a good opportunity to talk about this work and to encourage those supporting researchers to share their materials as OERs. I was therefore really pleased to see the Jorum Research Data Management collection launched today.
