Library Strategic Plan 2014-2017

Trent University Library & Archives would like to share with the university community our strategic plan entitled Transforming the Library through Collaboration and Innovation. This plan is ready for consultation and feedback from the university community.

In this plan, the Library and Archives has identified four main strategic directions with corresponding tactics

  • Supporting Teaching and Learning
  • Creating Spaces for Collaboration and Learning,
  • Enabling Research and Scholarship and
  • Building Partnerships.
