More than Puppets: Curriculum Collections in Australian Universities
Locke, Rae-Anne
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v38 n3 p192-215 Sep 2007
This article reports a survey that sought to capture a contemporary snapshot of curriculum collections in Australian universities. It highlights best practice and issues in collection organisation, development and access, the challenges facing these collections, and possible future directions. Many themes emerged, including: the need to make spaces a vibrant part of the teaching and learning environment; the need to integrate print and digital collections to raise students' awareness and use of resources; the need to demonstrate a link between collections and services and the students' learning experience; the difficulties resulting from reduced budgets; and the need to actively engage academics. (Contains 8 notes and 2 tables.)
