Poster presentation delivered at European Association for Health Information and Libraries (EAHIL) workshop, 2-5 June 2009, Dublin, Ireland. 2009-06-02.
For those involved in liaison librarian work, the development of information literacy programmes within the school curriculum, is often considered a prime objective. This poster demonstrates how working, with the academic staff in the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems in UCD, helped to identify the best route to information skills support in the curriculum and allowed me as a Liaison Librarian to explore student and staff needs, get engaged in student development and extend appropriate support. It comments on the structure of the designed programme, how it was implemented and explores the challenges and issues in relation to the training delivery. The poster also offers a reflection on lessons learnt from the process, puts forward creative ideas to engage students into the future and postulates on the possibilities for increasing and extending this support offering.
