Assumptions of the Area and International Studies Team

International and Area Studies Team: New Service Models Assumptions

  • The current service model is not sustainable so things cannot stay as they are
  • Library must think broadly about the entire campus and its international needs
  • Library is committed to supporting the campus vision of promoting intercultural scholarship and learning
  • All library international activities should have a seamless connection
  • Technical services report will be implemented
  • Library service points must be consolidated
  • Subject specialists may work with other library service providers at various service points
  • There will be no new resources for staff or collections in the near future
  • We must make the best use of library financial and staff resources
  • Given these assumptions we must develop a new international services model
