Need coordination at the curriculum planning level. In order to address lack of consistency among examiners in regards to rewarding good writing and referencing
  10. 10. Qualitative interviews - Evaluation Focus group interviews suggests:  Timing is important. When to introduce digital learning products in order for students to find them relevant and interesting?  Integration between the teaching and the library's digital learning products creates visibility and emphasize their relevance  Flexible use: the students use e-learning resources both to learn and practice for exams, doing project work etc.  Communication: The students does not use LMS to dialogue, but communicating face-to-face; via Facebook etc.  Employability: The students are aware that information literacy is useful and important in relation to their future jobs
  11. 11. Quantitative evaluation - survey Three things that seem to be decisive for students acquiring information literacy: 1. Curriculum integration is important: requirement that students must report / document search. 2. Personal contact: Easy access to "your" librarian provides better information skills. Librarians should be possible to grab hold of, students need an "office" where they can come for library assistance 3. Experience Orientation: Our contribution is informative and helpful, but we should work with presentation and pace, we could be more personal, creative and surprising in our materials.
  12. 12. New study from Dybvik HALDEN, Norway  students who had attended IL instruction regularly showed a better understanding of their search behaviour, recognized more databases, and talked less of Google than academic sources of information.  The results of the study reflect certain differences between nursing and teaching studies regarding the implementation of IL and academic requirements.  Results show that the library’s continuous and "just-in-time” IL instruction contributes to improve the students’ search behaviour. In addition, the collaboration with academic staff and the academic requirements in the studies seem to influence the students’ use of academic databases.  Presented at Creating Knowledge conference, Reykjavik june 2016
