At the University of Huddersfield, we were awarded a pot of “innovation” money for a small-scale project to develop good quality online information literacy materials in the light of fewer library staff available for information skills sessions coupled with increasingly large groups of students. This poster will tell the story of the project, complete with its highs and lows. It demonstrates that often it is the process rather than the outcome that can be an equally valuable learning experience for all involved. Work done so far includes:

Mapping the relevant strands of the ANCIL framework to our current materials in order to decide where there are gaps in our provision.

Location and evaluation of OERs in the field of information literacy with a view to quality and re-usability.

The purchase, training and use of Articulate Storyline as the preferred medium for creation and re-purposing of materials.

Some of the issues we cover are:

OERS are often difficult to use as they are “branded” and are relevant to specific institutions. It is not always possible to change them. Additionally, licences can restrict the nature of their reuse/repurposing

Fragmentation of the ANCIL framework strands due to the “academic skills” aspects being located elsewhere in the structure

Our attempts to reconcile the generic and the subject-specific aspects of the project

Sustainability and who will update the materials when the initial project is complete.

How to gain “buy in” from academic staff given that there is a great deal of material out there that they can already use if they wish to do so
