At a recent event at the Mitchel Library, Glasgow I was asked about examples of public libraries offering information literacy courses. Although there is some activity in this area we tend not to hear about it so whilst the following is not taking place in Scotland but Wales (one of our Celtic cousins) I thought it was worth a mention.
At the begining of December 2009 John attended An Information Literacy Framework for Wales event to share the project’s experience in Scotland. One of the speakers was Gareth Evans, Senior Manager – Libraries, Caerphilly County Borough Council and he has allowed us to share his presentation – Information Literacy – a public view and the accompanying documents:
- Junior Introduction To The Internet Booklet
- Glo Gs Os Linked To Activity
- Student Progression Record
- OCN Topics To Date
