Innovating technology in the Library

Posted on November 2nd, 2010 by Paul Stainthorp

Innovation by Vermin Inc on FlickrI recently chaired the first meeting of a new ‘Library Innovation Group’ for the University.

Here are its terms of reference.

We’re hoping that this new group will be a bit more lively than its predecessor (which had got a bit stale and reactive through overfamiliarity, and which wasn’t very accountable to users or even to other Library staff).

We’re intending, rather than receiving long, dry reports from the various Library systems projects, to use the meetings of the new group to brainstorm problems that are affecting our users, to propose solutions and kickstart development and corrective work, and to keep abreast of the changing technological base of the University. We’ll also blog the activities of the group, which is something that didn’t really happen in the past.
