Collaborative synergy: Building an energy geography resource hub

Anna Hulseberg, Tiffany Grobelski


Library and geography faculty at our institution consistently partner on integrating information literacy and academic research skills into geography courses. Librarians typically create course guides as part of that effort. During the 2021–2022 academic year, we—an academic librarian and a geographer at a liberal arts college—co-created an energy geography LibGuide intended to serve a wider community. In this article, we detail our collaborative process for creating a dynamic, interdisciplinary guide. While recognizing the challenges that can accompany this type of close partnership, we highlight the synergistic benefits to each of us, potential benefits to our audiences, and our plans for continued collaboration. Projects like this deepen interdisciplinary cooperation and may broaden the LibGuides audience.
