Beyond Information Provision: The Academic Library as Educational Change-Agent - An Australian Perspective

Funding, ICT, flexibility and changing student: academic staff ratios in massified undergraduate higher education are accelerating pedagogical change and attention to graduate attributes in universities. Disaggregation of teaching will provide a greater opportunity for academic librarians to partner academic teachers in that change, a focus for which in Australia and New Zealand is the Information Literacy Framework and the 2003 establishment of the Australian and New Zealand Institute for Information Literacy. In the age of information, the university library must recast its mission beyond excellence in the provision of information access, to emphasise a commitment to fostering the best use of that information.
