Regularly the busiest library in the UBC Library system, with over seven hundred fifty thousand visits during the period covered in this report, the Okanagan Library prides itself on being an inclusive space, a service-focused team, and a nexus of scholarly engagement. A proactive campus leader, our Library advances research, learning and teaching excellence by connecting communities, within and beyond the University, to the world’s knowledge.
The UBC Okanagan Library currently has five strategic directions, guided by both UBC Okanagan’s Aspire: Envisioning Our Future and the UBC Library Strategic Plan. These five strategic directions are:
- Create Transformative Student Learning Opportunities
- Facilitate Research Excellence
- Lead Through Strong Connections and Collaborations
- Build Dynamic Learning & Research Spaces
- Evolve as a Learning Organization
To learn more about each of the strategic directions and the progress made on each of them in 2016, follow the links above, or in the menu to the left. The strategic directions are reviewed annually in July by a team consisting of library administration, librarians, and library staff.
Questions about UBC Okanagan Library’s strategic directions should be addressed to Heather Berringer, Chief Librarian.
