LAUC Southern Regional Meeting, UC Riverside - June 19, 2014

LAUC Southern Regional Meeting on LAUC Divisional Participation in Library Re-organization

Thursday, June 19, noon-2p.m.
Orbach Science Library, Room 240
University of California, Riverside 92507

This meeting follows on a similar event, and will address many of the same issues and concerns, held recently at the 2014 LAUC Spring Assembly at UC Davis. Many LAUC members at Southern campuses, who were not able to attend the Davis event, have expressed interest in sharing experiences and dialoguing about matters associated with current/projected re-organizations of their libraries. Relatedly, discussion of major strategic planning efforts which have already resulted in major changes in library roles or service provision will occur.

Speakers from UCI, UCR, UCSD, and UCSB will begin by addressing their experiences on their campuses.

A panel discussion, encouraging audience participation, followed.
