Using ANCIL as a skills audit tool: response to ancillary questions

 

The interviews and surveys used by Katy Wrathall during the project Strategies for implementing ANCIL asked an ancillary set of questions to try to identify how respondents believed ANCIL could be implemented in their Institution. There follows the questions and a brief analysis of the responses.

 

37 people completed the survey, 30 by online response and 7 by interview. The responses broke down as follows:

 

Who "owns" the Information Literacy support and teaching?

Whilst the majority of those who answered the question (21) named the library professionals (18),  the academics were also identified as owners (1), everyone in the University including students (1)and in Student Services or equivalent(1).

 

Who do you think should?

There was a wide range of responses, incuding:

  • ·      Librarians (2)
  • ·      Strategic level  (PVC or DVC) (4)
  • ·      Collaborative partnership across University (1)
  • ·      Librarians and academics (1)
  • ·      Ownership is a flawed concept (1)

 

How should the new Curriculum be delivered?

There were 12 responses to this question, 8 stating that it should be embedded within the full extent of a course, 2 stated it should be in a single  mandatory module, 2 by a blended learning module, and only 1 stating that the Library should deliver via workshops.
