Hacking a textbook - how University of Otago Librarians supported a new academic initiative
Fisher, Thelma; Gallagher, Sarah
This article reflects on the experience of University of Otago librarians as advisors and contributors to an innovative method of creating an academic resource; hacking a textbook to fill a gap in Australasian teaching resources for Media Studies. Librarians were involved in this online textbook project at specific points from inception through to delivery, specifically in relation to: strategic planning, compliance, research, technical and bibliographic issues, archiving, scholarly communication, marketing and social media communication. Our experience as part of this project highlighted the varied services we provided for, and anticipated as librarians, and the value placed on that by our academic colleagues.
