  10. So, what does an Information Adviser do…? • “Responsible for liaison between LIS … and specific academic departments and for the development and delivery of subject information services to support their teaching, learning and research”

  11. Information Skills Teaching • “To develop and implement the planning, delivery and evaluation of information literacy teaching programmes and additional skills for staff and students both on and off campus”

  12. The “Seven Pillars” • Understanding the need to use information. • Packaging of information and choosing suitable sources for research. • Search tools and the need for a search strategy. • Locating and accessing information. • Comparing and evaluating information. • Organising, applying and communicating information sources to others. • Keeping up to date and contributing to new information.

  13. Some typical teaching sessions • Common Foundation Programme (1st year pre-reg nursing students) • LSBU libraries – opening hours, fines etc • Introduction to library web-site • Introduction to basic key word searching using library catalogue and databases like InterNurse All students have a 90-minute hands-on session: we run these over 2 days with 2 or 3 running simultaneously – usually 2 librarians to a group of 20 students

  14. Some typical teaching sessions • New to branch (2nd-year pre-reg nursing students) • Introduction to Ovid databases • Principles of doing a literature search • Revision of material covered in the initial sessions

  15. Some typical teaching sessions • Research Unit (3rd year pre-reg nursing students – some B.Sc, some Diploma) • Advanced features of the Ovid databases • Finding material for evidence-based practice • Cochrane • Web resources

  16. Other sessions • Beyond the Quick and Dirty Search – finding material for evidence-based practice (for post-reg groups) • One-to-one Desktop sessions for academic and research staff • Drop-in sessions • Introductory sessions for Foundation Degree students

  17. In practice… • I see some groups more often, some less… • I spend a lot of time explaining how their passwords work… • Groups vary enormously and this dictates the content of the session

  18. E-learning • Diagnostics http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/caxton/pdp/f.html# • Info Quest http://www.lisa.lsbu.ac.uk/quest/index.html • Blackboard (prototype site) • Blackboard (updated site)

  19. Future developments • LIS now part of CLSD… • Changes at senior level in the Library… • Fewer numbers from SHAs because of NHS financial problems…
