English abstract

Faced with increasing demands for Information Literacy (IL) instruction across the three major libraries at the University of Ottawa, instructional librarians acutely realized the need for an alternative and a support to their lecture-style instruction. An online IL tutorial was envisioned … but with no in-house programming expertise, no budget, and no hard evidence that this approach would work, the IL Coordinator had to be creative and determined to get this project off the ground. This poster session details the planning, partnership development and expertise needed to develop a fully interactive and bilingual online tutorial, including lessons learned and the realities of ongoing maintenance inherent in any online educational aid.
