The Okanagan campus library has more than doubled its student population since 2005, but there has not been a corresponding increase in the size of the library.
Two candidates for the chief librarian position are about to make their case on how they would build a case for a library expansion or a new library.
On Monday, Nov. 25, Janet Bangma, head of library systems and information technology at the University of Saskatchewan, will make her case. She has held numerous senior leadership positions at the University of Saskatchewan, such as acting assistant dean, for the services to libraries as well as two terms as acting associate dean.
Bangma will present at 9 a.m. in the University Centre ballroom.
On Monday, Dec. 2, Heather Berringer, acting chief librarian at UBC’s Okanagan Campus Library, will make her case. Berringer has been deputy chief librarian since July 2012 and was previously was director of Canadian sales for YBP Library Services. She he also held university librarian positions at Carleton and Dalhousie.
Berringer will present at 9 a.m. in the University Centre ballroom.
If members of the campus community would like to comment on the presentations and candidates, they can be submitted via email to Lois Marshall, director of administrative services for the library.
