BOOC: Academic book of the future

The Academic Book of the Future is the first BOOC to be published by UCL Press. This innovative new digital format presents subjects in the form of a ‘living book’ with articles of various types, in a non-linear thematic presentation that offers readers the option to select and sort subjects they wish to read. With long and short articles, blogs, videos, audio and Storifys, these ‘books’ are added to and grow over a period of time.

Due to the nature of material featured in BOOC only certain types of content were subject to peer review. Non-traditional content such as videos and Storifys have been excluded from the peer review process.

"Communicating Value Across the University: Library Assessment Across Academic, Student, and Administrative Afffairs"

"Communicating Value Across the University: Library Assessment Across Academic, Student, and Administrative Afffairs" | Higher education news for libraries and librarians | Scoop.it
A recent survey of US library directors has identified concerns in regard to their ability to communicate library contributions to student success to senior leadership and other institutional stakeholders, and to communicate the ways in which academic libraries contribute to strategic initiatives at the institutional level. This paper presents a case study of an academic library in which alignment with the university mission and strategic plan, and alignment of library assessment efforts with the broader culture of assessment at the university, have resulted in improved communication of library value to senior leadership, new investment in library facilities, and enhanced opportunities for collaboration across the university on strategic initiatives including student success, innovation in teaching and scholarship, and community engagement.
