University of Exeter becomes newest member of RLUK
Research Libraries UK (RLUK) welcomes the University of Exeter as its latest member. RLUK now represents 34 of the leading research libraries in the UK and Ireland.
"We are very pleased that the University of Exeter has agreed to join RLUK,’ said Dr David Prosser, Executive Director of RLUK. ‘From their exceptional special collections, through to their support for researchers and students, the Library at the University of Exeter epitomizes the modern research library. We very much look forward to the expertise that Exeter will bring to our discussions around the future of research libraries".
"The University of Exeter is delighted to be joining RLUK in the same year as launching the Forum, our new student-facing building with its newly refurbished and extended Library’, said Dr Jessica Gardner, Head of Library & Culture Services. ‘These developments are symbolic of the importance we place on developing our library, museum and archive services, which support our research excellence in humanities, social sciences, science and medicine. The Library has a strong digital agenda and we have substantially invested in building the e-resources to complement our outstanding literary and historic cultural special collections. We are at the forefront of developing new skills and services to meet the needs of the emerging open scholarship debate, and membership of RLUK will provide us with opportunities to share and learn with our partners in this prestigious grouping. With the new RCUK policy on open access, joining RLUK could not be more timely. Our staff and researchers will benefit greatly from the quality of debate and experience within RLUK".
The University of Exeter’s library collections account for over 1.2 million items occupying 50 km of shelves. The Forum Library has been fully refurbished and now offers a 25 per cent increase in shelving capacity with space for growth well into the 21st Century.
