On SAGE Insight: The library in the research culture of the university

A case study of Victoria University Library

From IFLA Journal

This article presents a case study of Victoria University (VU) Library as a relatively young university library contributing to the development of an institution’s nascent research culture. VU Library endeavors to contribute to the development of a contemporary research culture with a four-pronged approach, including strategic planning direction; one-off funding of initiatives; partnership with research services, and a realignment of staff endeavors to support the direction. The concerns, challenges, and successes of the Library may help inform the planning and implementation of initiatives and projects in similar academic libraries.
