I have an article up at InfoToday Europe on the CAVAL Australian research:
Results of the research project have been presented at conferences in Australia and the United States as well as in published articles. Here is a breakdown of some of the major findings of the research:
Better awareness of new technologies and inclusivity is a result of the programme.
Aligning with one of the most popular category responses of the national survey, the case study findings at CityLibraries also reflect a general feeling that the programme creates better awareness of emerging technologies and offers a chance for all staff to feel included. One survey respondent noted: “Raised awareness of the potential application of these technologies- Had a bonding affect on staff” while another stated: “Better general knowledge amongst staff, and greater use of the technologies with staff and patrons.”
