Further Education sector page is now live on!

The information literacy website now has a a further Education sector page at 

I like its title Further Education is unique ... just like everybody else: the sector that prides itself in its diversity.

The Information Literacy group is asking those in the Further Education sector to: 

Share your information literacy strategy 

A rapidly changing environment, combined with scarce resources, necessitates careful planning and decisions over priorities. Below is an anonymous example of an information literacy strategy that was created for an FE service. If you have a strategy that you would be prepared to share please send it to the ILG group.

The website has an example of an information literacy strategy for FE.

It reminded me of work that I was involved in re FE / Colleges in Scotland in 2009 with the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) in the production of a service development and self-evaluation framework for library and information services in Scottish Further Education (FE) colleges that included information literacy.

The framework states that:

College library services offer: 
• Access to a wide range of information in a range of formats 
• Support for attainment across the college community 
• Support for the development of information literacy 
• Assistance with effective utilisation of ICT in learning and teaching 
• Knowledge and skills in promoting reading for enjoyment 
• Support for personal and social development and citizenship skills 
• The type of flexible learning environment which can encourage independent learning 
• Access to structured information skills programmes to develop critical thinking skills.

The framework is now in its 4th iteration see
