Business Information Services Implementation Team Charge Final


Business Information Services Implementation Team


This team will create an implementation plan for a new model of service supporting research and learning in business and related disciplines.  Rather than being defined as a distinct physical collection and separate space, this new model will be defined by some services that are embedded in the primary departments served and others that are integrated into broader library service programs that provide support for scholars and students throughout campus using business information.   Thus, librarians will continue to provide embedded services to the students and faculty in the School of Labor and Employment Relations and the College of Business.  As part of the Main/UGL reference hub, Library personnel  supporting business and economics will also contribute service hours in person and virtually, cross-train other reference personnel and work collaboratively with Funk-ACES, Grainger and other library programs to support business-related research across campus.


Librarians serving the College of Applied Health Science, the College of Education, geography and the social sciences will be engaged in a parallel process to propose an implementation plan for an integrated library service program in the east wing of the first floor of the Main Library.
