Resetting the Libraries

As promised, my contribution to the Agenda this month focuses on our action plan for the current fiscal year. Please view the PDF to read the plan, titled Resetting the Rutgers University Libraries, in its entirety.

Inside, you will find further discussion about our focus areas for the year to come—communications, organizational structure, and organizational clarity—as well as the next steps for moving us forward in all of these areas. These activities will help lay a strong foundation for the next University Librarian and allow us to better align ourselves with President Holloway’s vision for Rutgers.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has participated in our information gathering activities thus far. Whether through the faculty/staff climate survey, the EHE conversations, or the various listening sessions I’ve conducted throughout the Libraries, your input was invaluable and helped give shape to this plan.

Please read the document carefully and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to continuing my work with you all as we carry out the steps detailed in the plan.
