The library has embraced a team-based management philosophy as it suits our strong belief in shared leadership practices, innovation, personal leadership, strong communication, and collaboration.
The Library Management Team guides the operation and management of the library and ensures that the library meets its strategic goals. To this end, this team develops policies and strategic plans, manages the budget and allocates resources. A team environment allows the library to better leverage these strengths and support students and faculty in their academic pursuits.
