The University of Lincoln has an internal Library Plan document, which sets out areas of strategic development for our service over the next 3-5 years.
Here are some bare notes I made in a meeting about the Library Plan this morning, relating to e-resources tasks and priorities over the next year. They’re here so I don’t lose them. They won’t make much sense without the Plan itself (which you probably won’t have read), but if you’re interested in what any of these mean, please get in touch.
These will be my priorities in 2013.
- Integration of LibGuides with Blackboard VLE.
- Helpdesk / enquiry management.
- Review use of reference management software.
- Resurrect the Calm (archives & special collections) project.
- REF2014 and beyond – plan for strategic development of the Lincoln Repository, including RDM and e-theses.
- Close the loop on authentication: OpenAthens LA, walk-in access, LOCKSS.
- Stats! Look at the University’s data-warehouse and dashboard approach, Nucleus/data.lincoln.ac.uk, and external services/software (JUSP, RAPTOR, etc.)
- Plan with the subject librarians to hone the use of Find it at Lincoln.
- Plan with the subject librarians/acquisitions to ‘hard launch’ reading lists; look at collection management.
- “Business Information Service”?
