    paper (No. 3).
    Students in many countries, especially the US and UK are concerned that the growing cost of higher education is not delivering good value. Excellence in teaching and a focus on measurement and assessment of learning outcomes have become entrenched in higher education policy and the strategies of academic institutions. In the UK this trend has crystallised in a new Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) introduced by government in 2017.
    As a result library leaders around the world will need to become more strategic in articulating value propositions based around a more holistic view of library/learning resources.The value of data analytics will be a key driving force. Data from reading list systems and digital textbook platforms combined with information from other institutional systems will allow powerful insights to emerge. Such analytics will be invaluable to institutions, publishers and intermediaries as they look at new ways to deliver content.

    Announced on blog
    New Library Management System – update. By Margaret Stone, on 29 January 2018
    "The new application is expected to bring many benefits for Library Services staff such as:
    Enhanced staff user experience
    Streamlined cross system workflows and processes. This will improve efficiency and reduce the time currently spent managing information in multiple systems
    Opportunities to enhance our services to students and other library users, through analytical tools and through interfaces with other services in UCL and beyond
    The new system is expected to go live by the end of August 2018".

    (ExLibris) Press Release
    "Qualitative feedback from library users indicated that the time was right to fundamentally review the workflows in the library and to improve the student experience,” said RGU Library Director Margaret Buchan. “Our ability to effectively manage the life cycle of electronic resources is currently hampered by the lack of flexible library analytics and an electronic resource management function. In addition, IT and library staff time is often spent carrying out hosting tasks and backing up, maintaining, and upgrading the library system, servers, and client applications. The cloud-based SaaS solutions delivered by Ex Libris will free staff to focus on strengthening the library's impact on teaching and learning.”
