Thoughts from Finland

After our second conference talk I enjoyed chatting to a couple of smaller groups of Finnish librarians. In the large conference they had been unwilling to ask many questions, but that wasn't the case in the smaller groups! We talked about how to engage researchers in developing their IL and I mentioned the self assessment tool I use at Newcastle. This just encourages folks to reflect on their own abilities and to identify areas they want to develop. A cut down version of it is going to be published soon as a Vitae booklet called the Informed Researcher.
