Dean’s Corner: A New Year for UC Libraries

After an innovative, transformative and event-filled 2015, UC Libraries is starting the new year off strong.

The Libraries are undergoing a great deal of physical change, from the accessible new entrance of the Geography-Mathematics-Physics Library to the updated service desk and learning commons on the 4th floor of Langsam Library.

Behind the scenes, our librarians and staff continue to plan and host events and educational opportunities for UC students and library users, like those sponsored by the Libraries’ Diversity grant. The Libraries’ online resources are constantly being refined to provide the best possible access and content for students and faculty, such as the BoardVitals Question Banks recently acquired by the Health Sciences Library. In addition, we are making it possible for UC’s faculty and researchers to archive and make available online their scholarly output with Scholar@UC, UC’s digital repository. Want to know more about the opportunities for faculty, staff and student workers? New positions are posted on the Libraries’ website.

This year, look for posts from me about the new and exciting projects and events at UCL, my local, national and international involvement with the library community, and my personal thinking on UC Libraries’ Strategic Plan going forward.

Thank you for reading and welcome back!
