Library staff Finnish visit

SRUC’s library staff recently hosted a visit from one of our ERASMUS partner institutions, HAMK University of Applied Sciences in Southern Finland.

Five members of staff visited SRUC’s Edinburgh and Ayr Campuses as part of the staff mobility programme which allows staff at HE institutions to visit international organisations as part of their professional development and training.

The group spent time at both campuses to see the library facilities and learn about the collections, both printed and electronic, and to hear more about best practice in library operations and management.

Of particular interest was information literacy and how this is delivered in both institutions. The visit highlighted the similarities between the institutions and it was a valuable opportunity to develop international links.

The group consisted of three library staff and two members of the University’s education support services. The Librarians joined an information literacy session being given to horticulture students at Edinburgh, whilst the Education Support Staff met with several colleagues from the Ayr and Edinburgh campuses to strengthen the ERASMUS links and to identify ways to prepare our students for exchange in Finland and vice versa.
