Abstract

A traditional trajectory for new initiatives in higher education may be described as a triad of application, project development and collapse. Following a call and the successful application for project funding, a project is developed and implemented. But when the seed money has been spent and reported on, the project folds and disappears without trace. This paper reports on a different outcome. We have managed to maintain and integrate a development project for student guidance as a permanent feature of the Library and Learning Center in an institution of higher learning. The paper describes the characteristics of the project as such and the mechanisms with which the process grew deeper and permanent roots within the existing organization. This is followed by a perspective on the immediate and more long-term future.
