This panel will showcase the incorporation of Monash University Library (MUL)’s Indonesian collections in research and learning skills development activities. MUL has been actively involved in various engagements with stakeholders that are internal to the university (e.g. faculties and centres) and those that are external (e.g. community). The panel will commence with a snapshot of how MUL is situated in its engagement with stakeholders. This is followed by an elaboration of the comprehensive Indonesian collections, incorporating both contemporary and rare historical resources. Rather than merely focusing on the richness of these collections, the panel will demonstrate how the resources are used in supporting both teaching-learning and research activities. In terms of student learning, MUL’s resources and staff expertise have been heavily involved in curriculum development and implementation of object-based learning activities. Meanwhile, MUL has also been supporting researchers from all around the world and across different disciplines. In doing so, some key resources have been digitised and made available globally. These resources will be highlighted in the panel. Presented by Subject Librarian and Learning Skills Adviser from Monash University Library, this panel will also involve a discussant to provide a researcher perspective about the collections.
