This article describes a new partnership between colleagues from the Library and the School of Law at the University of Sheffield which has led to the development of an innovative new undergraduate foundation module in law. We begin by describing the situation which existed before the project. Next, we describe two key changes which provided the impetus for the new collaboration: the library’s New Partnership Project and the development of the Law School’s new curriculum. Finally, we discuss key elements of the new foundation module, highlighting those which were facilitated by the new partnership.
