This paper presents the preliminary findings of an in-depth case study of the influences of technology in collaboration between academics and library staff in an Australian university. It has investigated the use of the current technologies, enabling and constraining factors of technology as well as the influences of institutional structure on the use of technology in collaboration. Institutional contexts, capability of the collaborator, and the academic and professional divide were analysed to gain further insights. It concludes with recommendations for universities interested in addressing the issues of technology and structure in collaboration between library staff and academics in various academic contexts.
