In the context of future of academic librarianship terms such as "blended" and "embedded" librarian have been used to describe emerging greater levels of involvement within the universities enterprise. Simultaneously new pedagogical approaches are being developed towards more authentic and engaging learning experiences. This case study documents the redevelopment of an undergraduate course supported by librarian leadership to deliver more engaging and authentic assessment tasks culminating in a library published peer-reviewed eJournal. It provides exemplars of 'new' librarian roles including co-teacher, publisher and communications expert, while also demonstrating the effective integration of professional graduate attributes into academic curriculum.

The UTS Library introduced a virtual reference desk at the start of 1999 in response to the recommendations of the Review of the Delivery of Information and Loans Desk Services undertaken by the Library in 1997. An increase in subjects offered in distance and flexible mode, the availability of Internet technology and the demand for a 24 hour information service were all factors which influenced its establishment. This paper discusses the development of this service: selection and organisation of content, selection of a search engine, metadata for the pages, integration into the Library's web pages and management of the service. The UTS Library's IORA Information System is located at http://www.lib.uts.edu.au

In 2010 the University of Technology, Sydney Library celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games with an exhibition of Sydney Olympic memorabilia. To accompany the physical exhibition we used the social networking site Flickr to display Olympic items. We also invited our community to upload their own photographs to our Flickr group. The aim is to develop a community sourced open-access collection that supports research and teaching in the area of mega-events at the University of Technology, Sydney
