This chapter explores some of the challenges met by library staff working on a distance learning degree programme for work-based learners, specifically the Social Work Degree at The Open University (OU), in the United Kingdom (UK). We reveal how close collaboration with the academic team writing the degree enabled library staff to integrate information literacy (IL) alongside information and communication technology (ICT) skills throughout that programme, including integrated assessment. We consider how the collaborative process influenced the design of this programme. Examples of activities are provided along with insights into how students value the development of IL skills within their social work practice. We conclude with lessons learnt and implications for practice within distance learning and, more broadly, technology-enhanced learning environments.
