Facilitating distributed authorship

This is about facilitating online projects and collaborative working. It involves groups or communities working together to produce a resource. This can be within NHS organisations or across geographical/ organisational boundaries.

NHS library and knowledge staff can support these groups with their information and knowledge needs. This could be by providing literature searching, document supply or advice on document repositories.

The Commissioning Handbook for Librarians is a good example of NHS Library and Knowledge staff working in collaboration to author a resource.
