  17. 17. What have we learnt • The teaching and learning fields are changing and so must libraries • Library sits in a vantage position to see links and convergences where learning communities may not see them • Information finding, organisation and dissemination is our strength
  18. 18. Conclusion • Two crucial points 1. Support for teaching and learning • Convergence of technology and student learning process may minimize library role therefore proactivity is critical! • Maintain learning facilitation role- 21st century learning has changed- OER and ILS 2. Open education/Open scholarship • Provide strategic link between OER and library• Establish a convergence with OA initiatives on campus to maximize resources and energies
