University libraries are no longer only the domain of librarians, students and scholars. As collections have moved online, libraries have created more collaborative working spaces for students, and incorporated other enquiry services such as IT or academic skills assistance. In 2015, La Trobe University went one step further and integrated Student Administration services to extend the student help portfolio via single physical and virtual service points. As part of a total University and Library restructure, a new service model was created in the Library, incorporating six specialist help areas: Library, Student Administration, Course Advisors, IT, Careers, and Academic Skills.
