The Research Information Network has just released its report on Research supervisors and information literacy. Undertaken earlier this year, the study was "investigating the place and role of PhD supervisors in the drive to ensure that research students possess the necessary level of information literacy to pursue their careers successfully in academia and beyond." The consultants were Curtis+Cartwright Consulting and Cardiff University. You can download:
- The main report, including an executive summary;
