Library Unveils New Mission, Vision & Values Statements | UCSB Library

Library Unveils New Mission, Vision & Values Statements | UCSB Library | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Alan Grosenheider, Associate University Librarian for Organizational Development & Effectiveness, recently led Library employees in planning sessions focused upon reviewing and revising the mission and vision of the Library. In an inclusive and participative process, employees helped to shape and write the Library's new mission, vision, and accompanying values statements, focusing on the values that Library employees share in common and on the value that the Library provides students and faculty. These statements are being used as the starting point for the strategic roadmapping conversations that the Library is conducting this fall with stakeholders from across campus.

Balancing Privacy & Innovation | Reinventing Libraries - Library Journal

By Joseph Janes:

"Balancing Privacy & Innovation | Reinventing Libraries
Library Journal
This discussion involves two fundamental principles that underlie libraries and librarianship."

[...]

"This discussion involves two fundamental principles that underlie libraries and librarianship. The first is a respect for the intellectual freedom of our clients and communities, which is why there is near-universal coverage of library circulation confidentiality laws, a recognition that a free people must be able to choose and explore materials and ideas freely without fear of what people might think. I, for one, don’t want anyone pawing through my circulation records, though if they can make a coherent story about all the stuff I take out, I’d like to hear it."

Karen du Toit's insight:

How the digital shift is impacting on the Library's vision - privacy vs innovation!
