Abstract

The Department of Learner Support at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has a substantial background in survey, research and evaluation work. More recently this work has focused on the information literacy agenda as a result of the evaluation of the usage of electronic information services by staff and students at GCU and as a result of the Drumchapel Project. The original aim of the project was to evaluate the ICT skills of pupils there but the outcomes suggested the need for a strong focus on information literacy training among secondary school pupils.
