Resource type
Date created
Research libraries are complex organizations whose mandate and focus are in transition, although in many ways their core values are the same. This presentation addresses the issues of e-learning, e-research and scholarly communication in this context.
On November 2, 2009, the Geoffrey R. Weller Library at UNBC embarked on a Strategic Planning Process through which to dream its
new vision as ?Research Library? to support UNBC as a research intensive university.
To facilitate the Library?s evolution, a Strategic Planning Kick Start Event, was held.
The day?s events included morning presentations by University Librarians from the University of British Columbia, University of
Victoria, Simon Fraser University and University of Guelph - each of whom provided a unique insight into their Library?s
successful academic evolution and what it actually means to be a ?Research Library?.
Mike Ridley (U Guelph CIO and University Librarian) talked about what it means to be a research library. Marnie Swanson (UVIC University Librarian) talked about the link between teaching-learning and research (the Learning Commons). Lynn Copeland's presentation was about e-learning, e-research and scholarly communication and Ingrid Parent (UBC University Librarian) spoke about the role of the library in the global community.
