The globalisation of Third Level Education has implications for units such as libraries in providing support to overseas campuses. University College Dublin (UCD) library responded to an invitation to provide library support to UCD students based on a campus in Beijing, China. This short presentation reflects on the impact of two visits by library staff in 2017 and the subsequent development of a programme to deliver an annual schedule of information literacy training to students of the college.
It will look at how we coped with working with staff and students in a different culture and work environment. We will examine how we can continue to deliver this initiative in a sustainable way allowing us to teach a high level of required support while also maintaining our teaching commitments on the main UCD campus. By offering solutions to several challenges we aim to create a model that we can use in potential future requests.
