Awards and achievements

Some of the accomplishments of the Library Service and library staff.

Investors in People accreditation

Library Services is delighted to have achieved the Investors in People - Gold Award.  The IIP assessor commented: 

This assessment highlighted the consistent and positive way in which people throughout Library Services experience excellent leadership and management support, to deliver their job role, and to seek further career enrichment or progression. The investment made in learning and development is significant, and frequently linked to the achievement of professional qualifications. The variety of learning and development activities demonstrate a keen interest in being innovative, using the best solutions with internal resources (examples include staff development hour and eLearning), together with external events such as conferences, networking, and courses.

This is a wonderful endorsement of our commitment to staff development, that has included protecting the budget for training and development, and the fortnightly staff development hour.

Better together award

Jackie Chelin, Deputy Librarian, won the prestigious Vice-Chancellor's Award at the UWE Bristol Better Together Awards in 2015 for leading the work of the Academic Literacy Forum. Her nomination stated:

Jackie has been instrumental in leading the co-ordination and development of our academic skills work with students across the university through the Academic Literacy Forum. Jackie's energy and enthusiasm is delivering real benefits for students in developing the skills they need to be successful in their learning and practice and is also a superb example to us all of working effectively across professional and institutional boundaries to deliver high quality services to students.
