Library Service

Target audience

All those working in university library and information services.

Focus areas

The changes occurring in the library sector due to austere budgets, the library’s future roll at in the university context, and opportunities for libraries to offer relevant services are general areas of interest. Learning environments, competency development, electronic media, and open access are of particular interest to the group.

Activity goals for the period 2017‒2018

The group’s first priority is to familiarize NUAS members with the new NUAS Staff Exchange Programme and to support successful staff exchanges between member institutions. The group will also monitor developments in the Nordic university libraries, particularly with regard to varying economic conditions, and seek appropriate partners for relevant activities.
