Results Achieved to Date

  • ExpectedResults:

    We plan to implement a curriculum that places every new and current employee on the same playing field, but allows us to create a tiered system that provides ever more detailed training for those who require that training. The University Libraries has never had a training program in place that cuts across units. This large undertaking should allow us to provide more consistent, higher quality service to our users and to allow us to identify problem areas.
