University Libraries Priorities for 2013-14

At its annual retreat last summer, the Administrative Advisory Group to Dean Rosann Bazirjian established the following priorities for this academic year.  As the second semester begins, it is appropriate to review those priorities.  Subsequent postings in upcoming days will link the priorities to our values, and explain some of those priorities in greater detail.  Feel free to post questions.
