I realised yesterday that maybe I am actually trying to undertake the early thinking related to the development of an initial concept framework that starts off a research process. The thought had been sitting quietly in the back of my mind but I was so strongly focussed on my concerns about blame culture and how that can possibly lead to us disempowering & demoralising ourselves, that I kept pushing it aside. Now that I’m listening to myself, I’m wondering (and not for the first time) can what I am doing actually be of sufficient rigour to offer librarians a tool to help begin reflecting on their info lit liaison if it’s not tested through a research process? I had seen research being necessary as a validating process of a “proper” tool but thought that perhaps it wasn’t necessary as a point to help people explore objectively when they are immersed in concerns about their work. mmmm ….
- Humility & liaison
- Ways of testing out value of 4Es-inspired liaison
- 4Es – can they inspire a helpful reflective starting point or am I really talking about a research-based tool?
- Update on possible academic client experiences of IL cluster & resulting thoughts about lib management cluster or subfactor/s
- Where might the clusters & subfactors be? #1: info lit experiences of our academic clients?
- Can Collis & Moonen’s 4-E Model be adapted to create a tool that supports liaison librarians in their work & resulting morale?
- Social media age – journos talking info lit
- Concepts used to “teach” info lit can be used to promote strong client liaison
- Libraries as “havens of future-ready skills lessons”
- Possible relevance to libraries seeking to shift from conventional to New Librarianship approach?
