Two articles from this issue of the International Journal of the First Year in Higher Education (an open access journal).
Cassar, A., Funk, R., Hutchings, D., Henderson, F. & Pancini, G. (2012). "Student transitions – evaluation of an embedded skills approach to scaffolded learning in the nursing curriculum." The International Journal of the First Year in Higher Education, 3(1), 35-48. This included collaboration with librarians on information literacy. "The embedded skills approach adopted in this unit attempts to ensure that students transitioning from a variety of contexts acquire a range of introductory academic skills in a supported learning environment. A mixed methods evaluation of the unit of study over two years (2009-2010) has revealed that students are mostly appreciative of the scaffolded and embedded skills delivery format and cite that elements of the model have supported their learning needs." pdf at https://www.fyhe.com.au/journal/index.php/intjfyhe/article/viewFile/102/103
