Identifying the information Literacy needs of your diverse users

I gave a presentation on Identifying the information Literacy needs of your diverse users, on 5th October at the CILIP Libraries for Nursing study day, in York (UK). Below is the presentation from slideshare. The ideas contributed by participants during the exercise afterwards (and the other presentations) may be made available soon, so I may will add the link to those in due course. The leader of the main afternoon session was Susie Andretta, and I must give a link to her excellent Facilitating Information Literacy Education (FILE) website Also, below the embedded presentation, I give the references which are at the end of my presentation.
