The critical role of the librarian in the development of a critical skills community of practice

A video of a presentation at the Academic & Special Libraries Conference, held 16-17- February 2017 in Dublin, Ireland: The critical role of the librarian in the development of a critical skills community of practice by Lorna Dodd (Maynooth University). "This paper describes how librarians at Maynooth University (MU) used the opportunity presented by a new curriculum to develop close working relationships with staff in MU’s Centre for Teaching & Learning (CTL), academic departments and other key student supports to create a new ‘community of practice’."
