Co-evolving Roles and Technologies in the NHS: Barriers and Forces for Change

This project finished in 2006, but I don't think I've blogged it, and there are a number of reports and papers that came out of it. There was work relevant to information literacy e.g. the conference paper by Adams and Blandford Digital libraries’ support for the user’s 'Information Journey', which identifies three stages on the information journey: Information Initiation; Information facilitation; Information Interpretation (the focus was mostly on health and clinical workers, although patient information was also considered). It was found that the interpretation phase was not so well supported by digital libraries.
