The use of digital technology tools is one of the many ways to help academics meet student-learning needs. With diverse student cohorts and high enrolment numbers, there is also a challenge for library support to be inclusive, engaging and sustainable. Academics are often time poor and unaware of how these digital technologies can be used to contribute to their teaching. This paper is written from a business librarian's perspective on how academics were supported in learning and utilising digital technologies. It consists of a critical reflection of the journey.
