Library-Faculty Connect Day 2017

Kendall Crilly speaks to faculty at Library-Faculty Connect Day 2017

Each year the Library will invite colleagues to Library-Faculty Connect Day. This is an opportunity for faculty to stay up to date with the latest developments at the Library, and more importantly it is a chance for them to provide feedback, ask questions, and meet with their librarians face-to-face.

This year's event was held on Thursday 7 December, and the big news was of course the new Library system. This has not always been a smooth journey, and many faculty have encountered difficulties using the new platform. Bugs, glitches, and other problems unfortunately caused inconvenience. Nevertheless, as reported during the Q&A session, faculty have noticed improvement since the system launched in July 2017 and voiced appreciation for the Library's efforts in this area.

Other items reported on this year included:

  • Liaison Program updates
  • Collection management activities (off-site storage / book shifting)
  • Newly-acquired e-resources
  • Teaching, learning, and research support
  • Digital scholarship and scholarly communication services

As usual though, the highlight of the event was the lunch!

This year's event was also special from a social media perspective, as for the first time some of the attendees tweeted from the audience! It was good to see that faculty found it useful, and the Library is looking forward to next year!
