L2L began as a collaboration between staff in three Libraries: Dundalk Institute of Technology, Institute of Technology, Carlow and Dublin Institute of Technology. Using the National Professional Development Framework, library staff explored and reflected on their professional development from multiple perspectives, including their evolving roles as library professionals, their professional identities, the relationship between their professional development approaches and the experiences of students, and ensuring the value of library services. An intention of this project was gain formal accreditation to recognise the work of library staff who teach and provide the validation and recognition of the invaluable role library staff play as educators. The project resulted in the development of a website for library staff who teach and a book which shares stories of the professional development journeys of librarians who teach.
