Staff at Macquarie University Library (MUL) have employed Project Based Learning (PBL) to facilitate multimedia skill development. This approach has created a team of people who are agile, enquiring, and creative. The paper suggests that by combining the application of a new set of media literacy skills with technology enhanced project-based learning, library technicians and frontline service librarians are given the opportunity to work on projects that equip staff with highly transferrable skills and a new attitude to projects and work while providing quality online information literacy support online at point of need to MUL clients.
