Abstract

Purpose: Provides an overview of a six week information literacy course for research students that was redesigned following the librarians undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education Design/methodology/approach: Case study and evaluation of the impact of a teaching programme Findings: Research students appreciate and value the expertise of library staff and are prepared to devote considerable time to an information literacy programme. Programme received excellent feedback Research limitations/implications: No summative assessment associated with the course so no quantitative measure of improvement in learning. Practical implications: Resource implications of running a six week programme. Originality/value: Provides a model programme other librarians can adapt for use at their own institution. Extended doctoral level information literacy courses are relatively uncommon and demonstrates the benefit of this type of course to research.
