Information literacy. Two workshops for UR librarians facilitated by BTH

Workshop in two parts for librarians from the UR libraries. Part one in December 2013 and part two in March 2014.

The theme of the workshops is learning objectives for Information literacy.
The aim is that the participants should produce a Program for teaching of Information literacy, related to their own context, where learning objectives and content are combined in a logical way.
The following presentations have been done:
