This module provides students with a broad appreciation of the range of digital library services within contemporary contexts and to encourage a critical engagement with the roles and purpose of these services. It examines and evaluates both the cultural and technical elements which contribute to these services.

The module encourages students to evaluate critically the strategic application of a range of digital library initiatives as well as to develop and evaluate strategies for the planning and implementation of a digital library service.  It examines how we identify and critically appraise user requirements for building and engaging diverse communities using digital library technologies.  The module focuses on the application of current technologies for the dissemination of information or information services in response to user requirements, and we also consider how to determine and implement methods of evaluation for digital library services.
