EMBEDDING ESSENTIAL INFORMATION LITERACY SKILLS IN THE CURRICULUMREBECCA GOLDSWORTHY

UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY LIBRARY

iResearch: Information Skills for life projectBelinda has given a great overview of the Seeding the Commons Project.

Ill describe some ideas for how the Library might build on the success of Belindas project.

Theres more information in my paper.

Our project is called iResearch: information skills for life.

Our presentation will just be a short summary of the project so far and a discussion about what we have learned. The paper has a lot more detail.

Most importantly we would like to offer a sincere invitation to you today.

.to take what we have produced, change it in any way you wish and share the results with our worldwide community.... so they can do the same.

2SCHOLARY VS. NON SCHOLARLY RESOURCES3

My final recommendation involves testing pilot activities

Lead by these new outreach and metadata roles, the Library could develop a program to build skills and knowledge among staff. This would be a pilot activity to build data confidence.

What would the Librarians need to support a conversation with researchers so they could describe issues, services and initiatives and make referrals to service providers?

Drivers for RDM (including institutional and national policy)Researcher attitudes and practices regarding RDMNational initiatives & external support agenciesOn-campus agencies: roles relationships & referral points

iResearch formal testing processWe also carried out formal testing, which, not only helped us find out what the students thought about the resources, but also helped us see if the students actually learnt anything from them.

We did this by using a pre and post quiz format.

The pre quiz was used to find out what a student knew about a particular subject before completing the resource, and the post quiz tested what they knew after thankfully it was always more!

They also completed a questionnaire which asked them to rate and review the resource.

[PAUSE]The testing was completed online and data fed directly to a database for analysis later.

Once again, students were thanked with bookshop vouchers, and once again, they were very happy about it!

[PAUSE]When the resources were ready, they were put up on the Librarys website for community use.

We are learners ourselves, and want to learn from our experiences.

To help get ongoing feedback, we added a feedback form to the end of each resource webpage.

5FIRST YEAR ROADMAP6

My main recommendation is that the Library demonstrate leadership by creating metadata and outreach roles. Librarians in these roles would build capability and professional development within the Library and provide services to the University. They would drive service development around research data management guidance and training.

There is a clear business requirement that the university provide research data management services. Research is increasingly driven by data. Across all disciplines, researchers work with data. A humanities scholar may refer to primary sources, and a social scientist may call it survey results. The terminology varies but its data.

Theres good reason for the Library to take the lead on developing research data management services. In 2011 the Library worked with ICT and Research Portfolio to develop a draft research data management roadmap. The Library identified strengths in training, guidance and metadata. The StC project librarians demonstrate these strengths.The DVC-R wants a RDM strategy and has identified researcher training as a priority.
