ISLG Presentation March 2014

Navigating the procurement and use of e-resources in secondary schools

Motivations and Interests

Today’s talk  Outline research methods  Provide an overview of current cross-curricular e- resources and examine their purpose and role  Consider factors affecting the implementation of e- resources  Looking ahead- 3 predictions

Survey: definitions and method  Cross-curricular e-resources- interpreted broadly, to include subscription and free content.  Cross-curricular refers to resources which are not subject specific, such as reference works, image galleries, journal databases and newspaper archives.  Approached SLA branches nation-wide alongside those with a known interest in the area.

What e-resources are being used?

Survey results: sufficient provision?  Currently limited high-quality resources aimed at GCSE and pre-GCSE level  More in additional languages which our students have as first languages like Somali, Polish, Lithuanian and more translation tools for EAL  More resources that are free or offered at a very reduced price for schools, wider availability of consortia buying  More resources for teaching Information Literacy  Wider availability of e-textbooks

Opening up the conversation  Free to access material- is it meeting our needs? Usability, interface, language level?  Clipbank- discussing requirements and shaping content.  Library networks- SLN, discussion forums, meetings, user groups

Where to go for advice?

IFLA: Key Issues for e-resource Collection Development (2012) Key areas to address  Technical feasibility  Functionality and reliability  Vendor support  Supply  Licensing  Currency  Value for money  Accuracy and completeness  Duplication

Sufficient knowledge  Digital Natives vs. Digital Immigrants  CPD- SLA/SLG/Twitter/SLN/CPD23/TACCLE  User knowledge- patron driven acquisition models

Sufficient ICT Capacity  How should it be measured? Hardware provision vs. BYOD  Wi-Fi infrastructure  ICT as a communication method- learning platforms, VLEs and digital signage

Relevance to Curriculum  Value-added- packaging material e.g. bookmarking, learning platform, content creation.  Free resources- GLAM/Wiki Projects

Looking ahead  Changes in curriculum will alter use of cross- curricular e-resources  ‘Hybrid’ staffing- changing role of the school librarian  Subscription vs. Open Access debate will filter down to school-level

Conclusions We can't go over it. We can't go under it. Oh no! We've got to go through it.
