University libraries play a critical role in academia, but they’re also a largely untapped resource for internationalisation. This session will describe how librarians from three countries developed an innovative and inexpensive model for supporting an online international joint Master’s degree programme. Learn how they created a single point of access for all three libraries, provided 24–7 research support and integrated transversal information literacy competencies critical to employability.
