Conditions of library use

Collection development framework

The collection development and management framework articulates the principles guiding the development of the Library's collection including acquisition of resources, collaborative collection building, access to resources and deselection of material.

Collection development and management principles are designed to meet the University's purpose, vision, strategy and priorities. As such, the Library's collection development and management framework ensures acquisition of materials is in line with the University's strategic teaching, research and business priorities.

Information literacy policy, strategy and framework

The Information Literacy Policy was first developed as part of the Library's 2008 Strategic Priorities to align our information literacy initiatives with the directions of the teaching and learning in the University. The Policy outlines library responsibilities and objectives and was revised in 2010/2011.

In 2009, the library developed a strategy to outline an action plan for developing inquiry/research capabilities. This strategy was revised in 2010/2011 as the Information Literacy Procedure. The Information Literacy Procedure describes a university-wide method and collaborative course of action for information literacy education as a component of the University's inquiry/research graduate capability. The Information Literacy Procedure includes an Information Literacy Framework which is designed to guide the development of teaching and learning activities.

Consultation with the faculties is essential to ensure the Information Literacy Policy and Procedure stays relevant and usable. We welcome your feedback or comment. Please contact the following staff:
