    • I is for Information Literacy
    • Individuals building an awareness of how they find, use, manage, synthesise and create information , in a wise and ethical manner , to the benefit of society, as part of their learning [and research] life. Information literacy is central to learning [and research] and essentially involves changing attitudes and habits so that people understand how information fits into their learning [and research] life.

    • How is research changing? Researchers said
    • More accountability / Fewer blue sky opportunities
    • More targeted outcomes
    • More collaboration (UK, overseas, across different types of organisation)
    • Multidisciplinary research areas
    • Data archives data mining, data storage
    • E science / grid
    • Repositories / Open access mandates
    • Harder to know all that is happening, especially in China, India etc
