Development Process

The CAUL SaP Project team was established in 2021 to support the creation of library-specific students as partners knowledge and resources. The Project Team worked together to develop the following Toolkit, including drawing on several case studies implemented at project member’s respective institutions. 

The Toolkit was endorsed and supported by Fiona Salisbury, Program Director, CAUL's Enabling a Modern Curriculum program, and Dr Kate Davis, Director, Strategy & Analytics, CAUL. 

We would also like to thank Kerry Bedford, Vanessa Crosby and Daniel Hamilton for their input.
