Holmesglen TAFE has developed an online Information Literacy tutorial in collaboration with the E-learning Unit. The paper explores the challenges faced as librarians worked with multimedia experts and the attempts to reconcile the expectations and aims of the two groups. Understanding the new pedagogy and tools required to successfully produce a dynamic tutorial, that gives similar depth to face-to-face tutorials, that content was comprehensive to cover Information Literacy standards, language appropriate for the target audience and information generic enough to deal with a variety of databases and interface also created challenges for the librarians. The result is Know it All!
