The third phase of LIDP (LIDP3), is an internal project at Huddersfield that commenced in 2014. LIDP3 will focus on making use of the data and insights generated from phases 1 and 2 to increase library usage among the groups identified as having the lowest use.

It is clear from the results from phases 1 and 2 that a ‘one-size-fits-all’, generic approach to information literacy is inadequate. Therefore, the Academic Services Team’s in-depth knowledge of each subject and student cohort has been used to identify the most appropriate interventions for each group - this is a logical progression from the data-driven approach of the first two phases.

If targeted successfully it is anticipated that LIDP3 could lead to a rise in use of library resources, which in turn could be a contributing factor to better student attainment and retention.
