Every academic year, instructors in universities and colleges around the world create resource lists for their courses. Their students are often expected to use and source additional resources beyond such lists, for example by using discovery tools. Librarians, who have the expertise to provide support for these tasks, are however often not involved and these activities are therefore rather disintegrated and inefficient.

This session takes a closer look at the role of the library in teaching and learning within both virtual and physical environments. Synergies between students’ and instructors’ tasks and the services which the library can provide for them, such as discovery and acquisition of resources, will be explored. We will also share ideas for cross functional and automated workflows to streamline the different tasks and discuss how we can provide tools for engaging resource lists that do not only provide the students with pre-selected items for a course, but also encourage the use of additional library assets and support a process of discovery, collaboration and knowledge creation. We aim for a lively discussion and contributions from the audience throughout the presentations.
