The ULS Strategic Assessment Unit was set up in September 2013 to coordinate data collection and analysis to support both operational and strategic priorities of the ULS system as well as help ULS demonstrate value of its services to all its stakeholders. 

The objectives of the new Unit include:

  1. Implementation and maintenance of a robust library data management infrastructure, which will allow for capture, storage and reporting of ULS statistics.
  2. Ongoing support of evaluation efforts relating to implementation of the annual planning process.  
  3. Development and implementation of new approaches to demonstrate value of ULS to the University, profession and wider community.
  4. Ongoing support of routine and ad hoc data and analysis requests.
