Project Description

The Scottish Library and Information Council is seeking a supplier to undertake a research study to scope out the pupil engagement landscape through school libraries in Scotland. This will include documenting the range of activity which takes place, evidencing best practise and scoping out the strengths of collaborative and partnership working.

It is envisaged that the research will comprise a mixture of desk-research and key stakeholder interviews. The project also seeks to identify how such activities can be scaled and developed for school libraries across Scotland.

SLIC is asking suppliers to provide guidance on pupil engagement activity in school libraries which support them on their learner journey.
