University of British Columbia (UBC) Library Releases Strategic Framework

From the UBC Library Web Site:

UBC Library’s Strategic Framework will guide the future work and strategic direction for the library, in alignment with the UBC Strategic Plan.

This framework identifies the library’s strategic direction, its vision and values, and the core elements and commitments that will ensure our success. This is a blueprint of what we want to achieve and how we plan to achieve it. The framework aims to keep our users’ needs at the heart of our decision-making processes, ensuring that we are supporting students, researchers, faculty and community members in their work.

To build the framework, we engaged in fulsome consultation with employees across the library, gathering stakeholder feedback through many in-person sessions, an online survey, and consultation with faculty and students outside the library. At its core, the framework is a highly collaborative effort, created through a transparent process to develop our shared goals and values.
