The SLU University Library has during 2013 reorganized with the aim to simplify our organization and make it more flexible and give better possibilities for coopera-tion between divisions and localities. The library has now two divisions, Scholarly communication and Research and learning support respectively. Activities within the divisions are run in six teams.
The Division of scholarly communication consists of the Publishing team which works in the area of electronic and open access publishing and bibliometric analyses, the Information resources team which works in the area of information retrieval and maintenance, and the Metadata team which works for high quality metadata in all our information services. The division works for a high quality research information infrastructure for the university.
A project for a new publishing database for the university was completed during 2013 and it is now up and running. The university open archive is maintained by the division and is constantly growing. Many bibliometric analyses have been performed for use in the university. The literature resources are constantly evaluated to optimize the value for the university. A European project aiming at a repository for resources in the fields of agriculture, food and environment was completed during 2013 and it was given high credits when evaluated by a European expert panel.
The Division of research and learning support consists of the Research support team which works with the integration of the library services in the research process, the Learning support team which works with support to teachers and students in the area of information literacy, and the Customer services team which works with support to all our customers in the library building as well as on the web.
A number of courses for research students have been arranged in the field of information retrieval and methods for scientific communication. More than 3 000 students have been trained in courses arranged by the library and our web based tool, “Search and Writers’ guide”, has been accessed more than 18 500 times. Other web based learning platforms and web based customer services are tested and evaluated constantly.
The library has had more than 400 000 visitors during 2013 and the library web site has had about a million visitors.
The library economic turnover was about 61 million Swedish crowns and the number of employees was 45.
