UCL Library Services: UCL Institute of Education, Newsam Library and Archives

eXeXToday sees the production of the Report on the future alignment of activities and services in the UCL Institute of Education, Newsam Library and Archives, with the family of libraries in UCL Library Services.

The work has taken over 6 months and resulted in a 200-page Report, which can be seen here – IoE merger – Final Report-final version.

6 Workstreams and just under 50 members of staff have been involved in contributing to the Report. It is a fantastic achievement. The discussions have been lively, positive and 100% engaging. The result is a remarkable piece of work, which maps in great detail how the UCL Institute of Education, Newsam Library and Archives, will continue to grow and develop as a full member of the UCL family of libraries.

A big thank you to all who have contributed to the writing of this Report, not least to Rodney Amis our Project Officer who has co-ordinated all the activity and produced the splendid final version of the Report; and to Frances Shipsey who leaves us today for a new role at Royal Holloway, University of London.

Please do take time to take a look at the Report, and at what has been decided.

Paul Ayris

Director of UCL Library Services
