Harvard University: "Libraries Announce New Organizational Structure"
From Harvard Magazine:
Under the new structure, each individual library within the Harvard Library system will join one of five affinity groups based on criteria such as collection needs, content or service commonalities, or specialized activities. The five groups comprise
- libraries focused on application of theory in practice, including those of the schools of law, business, education, and government;
- a group focused on physical and life sciences with shared research responsibilities, including the medical school library and the science libraries;
- a group formed around content areas, such as the humanities and the social sciences, including major collections such as those of Widener and Lamont;
- libraries of arts and culture such as fine arts, architecture, music, theater, and film;
- and finally, a group of special collections libraries such as Houghton and the University Archives.
