In the UK, it is becoming widely accepted that Information Literacy support should no longer focus solely upon student skills. Projects such as JISC ‘I-Skills’ (JISC, 2005) and ‘Big Blue Connect’ (MMU, 2004) illustrate that staff in higher education institutions can also benefit from information skills training; enhancing both their teaching and research practices.
This paper discusses the issues encountered during the implementation of the St Martin’s Library Research Support Strategy (St Martin’s Library Services, 2005) and looks at the considerations involved in the transformation of this policy into a framework of comprehensive skills support activities.
The use of central staff development workshops and departmental training is described and evaluated in detail in the hope that the experience gained from this work can inform other institutions embarking on similar activities in the future, highlighting aspects of good practice and identifying activities found to be less effective or of low-impact.
