The support community we will instigate focuses on information literacies in the broadest sense. We are particularly interested in the digital information life cycle – from research, to review and then output. We want a sustainable and participative way of building and maintaining library staff skills and confidence in the context of a fast changing technological context. We want to push their use of digital tools and information resources, empowering them to work in innovative ways with new technologies and having the self-assurance to seek student involvement in co-creation and agenda setting.
We are looking at something like the “23 things” approach, you can see an example of it here at Huddersfield http://25researchthings2011.wordpress.com/
In the 3 month period we will scope the territory further and produce an element of the programme.
