Library Support Strategies for Learning and Teaching and Research

All aspects of the Library’s services and resources are related to supporting learning, teaching and research. In 2012 the Library developed two strategies: the Library Learning and Teaching Support strategy and the Library Research Support strategy. The purpose of these strategies is to articulate how the Library contributes to and supports learning and teaching, and research at Victoria and to communicate this to the wider university community.

The focus of the Library Learning and Teaching Support strategy is on the services and resources the Library offers students and staff in relation to library research skills development. The Library Research Support strategy focuses on addressing the needs of postgraduate students and academic staff in their research activities.

Research, learning and teaching are undoubtedly linked. Each strategy cannot stand alone, and should be considered in conjunction with the other.
