About our Teams

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. A team environment allows the library to better leverage these strengths and support students and faculty in their academic pursuits.

The Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) guides the operation and management of the library and ensures that the library meets its strategic goals. SLT develops policies and strategic plans, manages the budget and allocates resources.

Our internal structure is made up of the following teams:
