On March 25 the Library held an engaging Town Hall discussion on its Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
Nearly 100 participants gathered virtually to get a behind-the-curtain look at how the Library operates and its ever-critical role in teaching, learning, research and the UWaterloo journey.
Moderated by Beyond the Bulletin Podcast co-host Pamela Smyth, the event featured special guests James Rush, vice president academic & provost, and Bruce Muirhead, associate vice president, research oversight and analysis. University Librarian Beth Namachchivaya followed with an informative presentation and dynamic conversation about the Library, its strategic goals, and the active work currently taking place. Questions from participants touched on a number of areas including the pandemic's effect on library services, infrastructure improvements, and the rising costs of scholarly journals and books.
This event highlighted the unifying force of the Library, often referred to as the heart of the campus, across disciplines and across the University.
