Courseware in academic library user education: a literature review from the GAELS Joint Electronic Library Project
The GAELS project (Glasgow Allied Electronically with Strathclyde) is a library-based project intended to promote a culture shift among engineering researchers at Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities. Our intention is to decrease researchers' dependence on separately held local print collections in favour of collaboratively held networked electronic resources. To support this aim, GAELS (1999) has created a courseware package to teach researchers the different information retrieval skills required to use such networked resources.
