New spaces for students and researchers. An ambitious digital agenda. Engaging communities throughout British Columbia. Supporting the evolving roles of Library staff. These topics are covered in UBC Library’s new Community Report, which highlights some milestones related to the Library’s five strategic directions: Enhance Student Learning, Accelerate Research, Manage Collections in a Digital Context, Engage with Community and Create an Exceptional Work Environment.
The report – available online and in hard-copy format – has been distributed to the campus community and external audiences.
UBC Library released its Strategic Plan in 2010 after engaging staff and stakeholders in a process that resulted in a five-year blueprint for action. The document was also developed to align with the initiatives of Place and Promise (http://strategicplan.ubc.ca/), UBC’s overarching plan.
