Building a library for Information & Digital Literacy Skills | Jorum Team Blog | jorum.ac.uk | Libraries and literacy | Scoop.it

It was obvious from feedback received from the Jorum community that the existing classifications for Further and Higher Education, based on LearnDirect and JACS respectively, were not a good fit for Information Literacy (IL) Skills. Until now, the only suitable home for these resources has been in the Education collection, but this is both incorrect and diminishes their discoverability. In the early stages of creating the RDM collection, it became obvious that something similar was needed for these resources too.
