The Pro-Vice-Provost’s View

By Paul Ayris, on 14 December 2018

Happy holidays!

On this, the last day of term as we approach the Christmas period, I want to write and thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the past year.

At the annual Planning round meeting with the Provost yesterday, the Library’s work was commended by academic colleagues for the quality of services we offer to the whole university. It is a credit to all staff in Library Services that we continue to receive strong feedback in user surveys, and that we are leading the way in providing high-quality research-based library services, in public engagement in London and in open access publishing.

We can be proud of our collective achievements in 2018. Looking ahead to the New Year, there will be challenges but also exciting times in 2019. The opening of the Student Centre will set UCL as an international beacon of good practice, combining excellent design with our exceptional customer service ethos. There will be opportunities for many of our libraries to shine in the subject-level Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF), where UCL is participating in the pilot.

I wish you a very happy and relaxing break, and hope to see many of you at the Library Christmas Party this evening.

Paul Ayris

Pro-Vice-Provost (UCL Library Services)
