SCONUL Annual Conference and AGM, Dublin, Jun 19-21

Findings of the work around the RILADS project will be  presented in a workshop at the SCONUL Annual Conference and AGM in Dublin on Thursday 20th June.

Abstract follows:

This workshop session will discuss one of the key findings of current research into information literacy in UK Higher Education.
While information literacy is of paramount importance in the changing information landscape, there are important issues raised in terms of information professionals’ digital scholarship skills. This research, funded by Research Information Network and SCONUL, investigates information and digital literacy in UK HE, which is mostly within the purview of librarians. It has found that there are a wide range of skills and competencies, including digital scholarship skills, required of staff which range beyond the ‘traditional’ job requirements of the librarian. These issues impact not only on CPD but on the very perception and definition of librarianship in the 21st century.
Slides will be uploaded to this site after the conference.
