The Framework Five is a self-directed online course which is designed to introduce any staff working in Cambridge University Libraries both to the Cambridge Information Literacy framework, and to some of the information literacy skills that we all need professionally or personally. It’s for all staff in our libraries, not just those who work in teaching roles, or with students, or in front-line positions. Everyone is welcome, and everyone will gain something from it.
Taking place over 14 weeks, and launching in early February, the Framework Five will include just five blog posts, and tasks to complete based on those posts. You can complete the whole course, or dip in and out as you wish, and the blog posts will be scheduled to make sure that you have plenty of time to complete the tasks.
The course is a joint project between CILN and Librarians in Training, and is being run by George Cronin, Laura Moss and Helen Murphy, with input from the CILN and Librarians in Training teams.
The course is loosely based on popular 23 Things style programmes, such as those at the University of Oxford, the DH23Things programme organised by the Digital Humanities Network for Arts and Humanities researchers in Cambridge, as well as the brilliant Cam 23 (Cambridge 23 Things for Librarians) programme.
