Abstract

Describes a combined approach to delivering information literacy skills at The Open University Library. Outlines the aims of the newly formed Information Literacy Unit, and identifies three approaches currently used to incorporate information literacy into the curriculum. Focuses on MOSAIC (Making Sense of Information in the Connected Age), an on‐line information literacy course, in particular on issues around assessment, on‐line delivery and support, its use as a staff development tool and positive results of a recent survey. Recommends that information literacy is considered at a strategic level in the higher education sector.
