Students may engage in individual work-based projects in a wide range of different courses and work environments. In library and information studies and other professional disciplines such projects are viewed as essential to the development of an appropriate awareness of professional practice. Nevertheless, work based projects pose some unique problems for students, supervisors and assessors. These can be grouped into those arising from: changing agendas and environments, confidentiality, access, links to existing work, and dealing with two audiences. Successful outcomes will only be achieved if all parties are aware of these potential hazards and students are offered appropriate support in negotiating these should this be necessary.
