The original ANCIL project (May-July 2011) produced the following reports and documents:
1) Coonan, Emma and Secker, Jane. (2011) A new curriculum for information literacy: executive summary. [PDF]
2) Coonan, Emma and Secker, Jane. (2011) A new curriculum for information literacy: curriculum and supporting documents. [PDF]
3) Coonan, Emma. (2011) A new curriculum for information literacy: ‘Teaching learning: perceptions of information literacy‘ (theoretical background). [PDF]
4) Secker, Jane (2011) A new curriculum for information literacy: expert consultation report. [PDF]
The project was followed by a second joint fellowship (October-December 2011) with project researchers Katy Wrathall and Helen Webster. This second stage was designed to create strategies and resources for implementing ANCIL at a number of UK higher education institutions.
- A range of downloadable resources is available from the About ANCIL page, including a tool for mapping information literacy provision across an institution, a lesson plan template, and the full curriculum.
- Also available is Helen’s Information Literacy First Aid model designed for use in one-to-one consultation situations (e.g. at the issue desk).
- Katy’s report on Strategies for implementing A New Curriculum for Information Literacy (Higher Education Institutions other than Cambridge) has now been released (March, 2012).
Comprehensive documentation, resources and case studies can be found at the Implementing ANCIL wiki.
