On 14 December 2012, the annual BCLA ALPS December meeting was held at the Langara College campus. The panel speakers represented their academic institutions – Simon Fraser University and University of British Columbia, Vancouver (both located in the Greater Vancouver area) and the University of British Columbia, Okanagan (situated in the Kelowna southern interior area) in British Columbia.
One theme focused on two main areas academic libraries are currently facing – library service reviews and assessment. The library service reviews’ discussion drew attention to the trends, challenges, opportunities and implementation solutions that are changing the academic library landscape. The other theme highlighted was UBC Library’s Strategic Plan 2010-2012 and how one of its core goals is to enhance student learning by “deliver(ing) a responsive, integrated program of services and create(ing) exceptional learning and research environments” as it relates to assessment practice and implementation in academic libraries.
Without further ado, we are pleased to announce that the videorecording and slide presentations are now available in cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository!
