Organizational Learning for Library Enhancements

The latest issue of C&RL (College & Research Libraries) includes an article co-authored by Associate University Librarian Beth Dupuis and Optometry & Health Sciences Librarian Jeff Loo. The article, Organizational Learning for Library Enhancements: A Collaborative, Research-Driven Analysis of Academic Department Needs, presents an evaluation and an assessment of the Academic Program Review (APR) at UC Berkeley. The authors illustrate how a systematic review of the various college and departmental APRs are used to supplement the work that librarian liaisons do and help prioritize library services and collection development.
