ReLIANT: Reader's guide to the Literature on Interventions Addressing the Need of education and Training

Denise Koufogiannakis, Andrew Booth, Alison Brettle

Abstract


Librarians need to be able to read critically published
accounts of educational and training interventions
(ETl) and to apply the results to their own practice.
One mechanism for assisting library practitioners in
doing this is the critical appraisal checklist. This article
describes the process of developing such a checklist -
involving a literature review of existing frameworks
and experience in appraising such studies for a
systematic review of information literacy skills training.
The ReLIANT instrument is offered as a first attempt
to equip library practitioners with a tool for use when
appraising published reports of educational and training
interventions.
