Fleming, Mary , Flynn, Paul , Hall, Tony , Houlihan, Barry , & McSweeney, Niall. (2018). Breaking the SEAL: Enhancing engagement with academic libraries and the academy through educational design innovation in technology-enhanced learning. In Marwin Britto & Kirsten Kinsley (Eds.), Academic libraries and the academy: strategies and approaches to demonstrate your value, impact, and return on investment, Volume Two. Chicago: ACRL.
Breaking the SEAL developed from a partnership between the James Hardiman Library and the School of Education at the National University of Ireland Galway. This initiative provides second-level students with opportunities to engage with an academic library and archives. Tangible learning outcomes include critical twenty-first-century skills: collaboration, critical engagement, academic writing, and digital library and information literacy. This novel program brings the academic library into contact with a wider audience while concomitantly advancing the strategic aims of the university. In addition to narrating the development of Breaking the SEAL, supporting materials, program time frames, and guidelines for adoption are provided.
