EIFL Digital Research Literacy Training Programme Outline for Librarians a comprehensive collection of resources to enable academic librarians to equip researchers and students with the skills, knowledge and understandings required to produce quality research outputs in a digital environment.
The training programme outline is organized according to the research cycle: Discover, Manage Research Data, Publish, Disseminate and Increase Visibility, and Measure Impact. Each section gives an overview of the topic, what the trainer should cover, and what the learner should gain by the end of the training.
The third version includes many new resources for facilitators and learners, including webinars, videos and online tutorials, library guides, tipsheets and examples of handouts and presentations. We have also removed resources that have become outdated or less relevant.
The EIFL Digital Research Literacy Training Programme Outline for Librarians was first published in November 2020, after an EIFL survey found that librarians in academic institutions in developing and transition economy countries were struggling to provide this training in an ever-changing digital world. We updated the training programme outline in 2021 to include presentations and resources from a series of 12 webinars for librarians on the topic organized by EIFL.
Thanks to all the universities whose resources are included in the training programme outline, and the people who gave presentations and shared their expertise through our series of webinars.
