      our hypothesis
    • 4. Our hypothesis
      The effective utilisation of specific library media, requires that they are strategically placed. By locating media in context, aligned with other learning activities within an academic unit or program, we hypothesised that the media would attract interest and provide data about students’ library literacy and needs
    • 5. Information push approach
      pilot semester 1, 2009
      information push approach
      support and assist students
      develop students’ information literacy skills

      LAMS plug in within Blackboard
      purpose built for online learning
      student-centred learning
    • 8. Evaluation of LAMS access logs
    • 9. LAMS forum discussion
      I do use the databases and find that they take up little time and are very easy to use. I would advise others to use them too
      I haven’t actually used the education database yet, but now feel, after watching the podcast, that when I eventually do, I will know how to use it
    • 10. LAMS forum discussion
      The vodcast helped us create better search strategies which will help us find more quality information and will save us time
      I particularly liked the consistent use of examples to help us understand the theory behind how to develop an effective search strategy
    • 11. What did we learn?
    • 12. What did we learn, about using media?
      embedded library media supports students
      asynchronous access
      at point of need
      sustainable, re-usable
      needs updating
      LAMS ideal medium, not essential
    • 13. What did we learn, our staff?
      educational partnerships between library and academic staff
      academic staff bring great student focus
      need to target academic staff willing to experiment
      library staff learn new skills
    • 14. What did we learn, about our students?
      interest in library media from students
      decreased in interest in more specific library media
      library awareness in first year TE students
