Library Learning and Teaching Framework

The purpose of the framework is to articulate library learning and teaching opportunities and services to enable students and staff to become information literate, so they may apply their learned skills to finding, using, sharing, managing and evaluating information in meaningful and scholarly ways.

The Framework aims to support academic culture and an excellent student experience through a range of learning tools. Engagement with the Framework will maximise the chances of students successfully completing their studies.
