    Abstract

    From 2014 to 2016 DTU Library was involved in a large multi-institutional publicly funded DEFF (The Danish Electronic Research Library) project entitled “E-learning, information literacy and library services” that focused on enhancing links between education and employability, including information competencies. As a part of this project, DTU Library and The Royal Library, Copenhagen, developed and implemented a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on academic information seeking. This paper will analyze and discuss how we have used the results and experiences from the DEFF project to develop and further qualify our e-didactic and e-learning endeavors. The second part of the paper will look to the future and how a new DEFF funded project running will seek to establish new solutions taking their inspiration from the concept of co-creation. We will discuss underlying theory of the two DEFF projects, target groups, and how experiences and conclusions from the first DEFF project influenced and charted the direction of the second DEFF project.
