Cool job title! Interesting idea.

For the period of the next year, RLUK will examine, amongst other issues, UDCs in respect of connection with research programmes and institutional missions, fundraising, external engagement, digitisation and promotion, and staff support. This work will result in a comprehensive report that will provide information on UDCs for RLUK member and other libraries, their current condition and future prospects, with case studies and recommendations.
