In 2010, the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) Library began a major review of online information literacy and learning support. The review was conducted in response to changes in the academic environment. The goal of the project was to develop digital literacies of our community in this new learning environment and to firm our collaborative relationships with the units that provide assistance to students on campus. The end result was the creation of the Study Skills portal, which saw us combine our information literacy tutorials, redevelop our academic writing modules and introduce new modules on graphics and social media.
