The British Library, Tate, V&A, National Portrait Gallery, BFI, Wellcome Trust, Imperial War Museum, JISC, SCONUL
and others are backing the safe passage of clause 42 in the belief that it will provide the UK with the best orphan works solution in the world and unlock vast amounts of collections for the nation.
The writing exercises and activities used in the program are described in an article I published in SCONUL
Focus, a library journal published in the United Kingdom (Fallon, 2009).
Models have emerged, such as Kuhlthau's (2004) information search process and the seven pillars model (SCONUL
), which organise information literacy into a developmental process: recognising an information need, determining ways of addressing the gap, constructing search strategies, locating and accessing information, comparing and evaluating it, organising, applying and communicating it, synthesising and creating a new product based on it (Gibson, 2007).
This survey was a joint initiative between Society of College, National, and University Libraries (SCONUL
) and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), that since 2004 has sponsored a program to assist libraries with the assessment of services that they offer their users and the processes that support those services.
Godwin and Parker, both members of the SCONUL
Working Group on Information Literacy, have edited this collection of research papers on the methods and strategies librarians are current using to expand their services to include these new innovations.
Outside the United States, ARL Statistics has collaborated with statistics-gathering efforts in Canada through the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) in the United Kingdom through the Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL
) and in Australia through the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL).
