Institutions of higher education have strategies on digitization and the use of digital learning resources for their teaching in place. One initiative from the university libraries aiming to operationalize such strategies is a three-year Nordplus project that was completed in the autumn of 2019. The libraries at Aarhus University, Lund University and the University of Bergen have worked together on the development of e-learning objects, and their implementation and evaluation. The aim of the project was to develop the library's teaching of information literacy in a co-creation between libraries, the academic community and students.

This article will shed light on the prerequisites that must be met for competency development among participants in a project to take place. We present relevant research and literature, and take a closer look at the project's activities and processes. In the analysis we discuss our experiences in relation to the literature presented, and we conclude, among other things, that participating in a project is engaging and enhances quality in learning processes. We also believe that collaboration in a wider academic network for educational librarians in the future will contribute to a stronger and clearer position as an educational actor for Nordic libraries in higher education.
