Library Evolution 2029
King's has set out a compelling vision to ‘make the world a better place’ in its strategy for 2029. The strategic drivers that will enable its delivery mean that Library Services must position itself as a provider of access to world-class resources and learning spaces in order to support research and teaching.
We will need to take a leading role in the emerging digital landscape at King’s, create services to support the full research life-cycle and Open Research as well as empowering students in digital literacy. We must place our Archives & Special Collections at the heart of King’s cultural offering and create opportunities for multi-disciplinary study in new learning environments.
In order to do this, we have recognised that our current services need to evolve and grow in full collaboration and partnership with the university. As the university changes around us, it is imperative that we work together to ensure that Library Services can realise and deliver the ambitions of Vision 2029.
Working with our stakeholders, we have created a plan, Library Evolution, which will enable us to fittingly transform our services, our resources and our spaces as we move towards 2029. Library Evolution is the journey along which we shall travel over the next decade to deliver a library for King’s that is fit for the 21st century.
