Canoodling with careers: Cross-team working in information literacy


Canoodling with careers: Cross-team working in information literacy

A workshop delivered at LILAC 2014

Maria Carnegie, Library Services Manager (Buxton and Leek)

Jonathan White, academic librarian (Buxton)

Vanessa Vivian-Shaw, Careers Consultant (Buxton)

The three of us - Jon, Vanessa & Maria


We work at the University of Derby. We're all part of a cross university support team - Learning Enhancement & Innovation but work for two sperate units within the department: Library and Careers & Employability teams. what we have in common is a campus. The Buxron Campus is some 40 miles north of Derby and serves a distinct population of students. In the summer of 2013, the Careers operation was moved into a room within the Library - tthe final move in an already developing relationship.

Taking advantage of geography, small teams and a natural desire to share and provide a joined up approach we started to work closely together from a student point of view.
