Supporting the Teaching of Information Literacy with First Year BSC Nursing Students: The Case for a Printed Workbook
Ryba, Helen M.; Pledger, Trudi
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v22 n4 p430-440 2016
Information literacy (IL) is increasingly considered to be an important life skill and there are a number of challenges that librarians face in implementing an effective IL program. This article examines the experience of library staff at Birmingham City University (BCU) and how they developed a printed workbook to be embedded within sessions attached to a first year Nursing degree academic skills module. Previous approaches to IL input with Nursing students will be discussed. The changes that were made and the impact of these changes on students, academic and library staff are then considered. Since the implementation of the workbook, feedback from students and staff has been encouraging concerning its purpose and value. Possible future developments are then suggested.
