Libraries R 4 Learning: supporting the Curriculum for Excellence in Aberdeenshire

Sue Cromar

Abstract


In April 2009, Aberdeenshire Library and Information Service (ALIS) was awarded £10,000 by the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) to develop and deliver a programme of advocacy - designed to inspire and encourage effective, equal working partnerships between librarians and teachers in local secondary schools. All materials created over the lifetime of this project will be published under a Creative Commons licence, and made available to be used and adapted by library professionals across Scotland. This article outlines some of the ideas and observations that fed into our successful proposal, and sets out our plans for achieving key outcomes of the Libraries R 4 Learning project.
