Main Article Content
This article describes and discusses the principles behind the preparation by staff of the Information Services Directorate of Cardiff University of the Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching (HILT). The Handbook aims to equip staff with techniques to promote information literacy, to prepare learning outcomes and to deliver and evaluate appropriate learning experiences within teaching schools in the university. The 2006 edition of the Handbook, which runs to 130 A4 pages and is available to subject librarians in both paper and web format, has been revised in the light of both internal and external evaluations. A number of higher and further education establishments and the library of a government department have taken part in an external evaluation and the results of this are presented. The findings on the transferability of the Handbook to organisations outside Cardiff University are discussed and presented.
