I wanted to let you know that we have heard concerns from many of you about librarians and archivists’ participation in the UniForum program. The Faculty Association has had a couple of meetings with the University to share these concerns and to find out more about the data collection process and how the data collected has been used to make decisions in other participating libraries. As a result, the University has committed not to make any decisions about the Library based on this year’s data. We have agreed to continue to meet with the University to better understand the kinds of data being collected and how it might be used in decision-making at UBC.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Chair, UBCFA Librarians & Archivists Committee
