2010 Review of Monash University Library – call for submissions

A message from Professor Adam Shoemaker, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education)

Under the Monash Quality Cycle Support Services Units are reviewed every five years, following a process and terms of reference defined by CHEQ. According to this process an initial self review is followed by an external review, enabling the University to assure itself of the quality of its academic organisational areas and to utilise learning to effect ongoing quality improvement.

In line with the University's Support Services Review Policy and Procedures, the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) initiated a review of the Monash University Library. The review panel convened to undertake this task examined a self-review report prepared by the University Librarian, attended a site visit to conduct interviews and tour facilities, and presented findings and recommendations for the Library. The site visit occured at Monash University, Clayton campus on 6 and 7 July 2010.

The Self-Review Report formed the basis of input to the External Panel Review which was the second phase of the Review. The report discusses progress, achievement, performance and outcomes in relation to planning objectives and performance indicators, relevant national legislation, protocols and policies, benchmarking against relevant competitors, compliance and risk management, quality assurance and improvements. Interested members of the Monash community were invited to make submissions.

Submissions and requests to be interviewed by the review panel from interested members of the Monash community were accepted during the period up to and including Friday, 25 June 2010.
