This paper presents a case study of how a university lecturer and a faculty librarian built upon their shared concerns about first-year students’ lack of information literacy. It describes in some detail their underlying beliefs, which led to this experimental intervention design and the strategic e-partnership. Embedded library podcasts were used to push library information to students. The potential and actual impact of this e-partnership on personalised support for a diverse student body is explored and an argument is presented for e-partnerships among university staff in an effort to better assist first-year higher education students.
