Abstract

Information literacy is the set of skills involved in searching for, evaluating and using information in an ethical manner. As such, it is a key part of independent learning and research skills. Vitae recently published ‘The informed researcher' booklet looking at the Vitae Researcher Development Framework through an information literacy lens. At the University of Huddersfield we have used ‘The informed researcher' as a basis to create our own information literacy framework for researchers, creating a framework that suits our local needs. These are supported by a range of learning materials, primarily Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) repurposed from other institutions and made available to researchers in a convenient, central and structured environment, though we have also created our own materials. This workshop will examine the approach taken by the University of Huddersfield in supporting the development of researchers' information literacy using the adapted informed researcher framework. It will give an opportunity to discuss the nature of information literacy and how the informed researcher framework may be adapted and used to meet attendees own institutional needs.
