This chapter explores the concept of impact from the perspective of the
National Professional Development Framework for all staff who teach
in Higher Education as well as from a library centric perspective. It
explores library impact and its meaning for library staff involved in
teaching. It examines the meaning of impact and the different levels of
interpretation. It presents an overview of how impact is presented in the
Professional Development Framework and also in the library literature.
By doing this it proposes to help library staff better understand not only
the concept of impact but also how the professional development
framework can inform the concept of impact. In turn they can explore
their impact in teaching.
