by COMM 4331: Management of Organizational Change, supervised by Dr. Judith Holton
To assist with the library’s strategic planning process, Dr. Holton’s class used an Appreciative Inquiry (AI) process to discover and explore what students and faculty of MTA value most about the R.P. Bell Library and its services.
Appreciative Inquiry emphasizes a holistic approach to mobilizing energy for change by focusing on what an organization or group already does well in order to amplify and continue these processes into the future.
You can read the students’ report on the project and patrons’ library experiences here:
The Mount Allison Libraries and Archives' commitment to teaching, learning, research, and scholarship supports and advances the academic mission of the University. All library staff are engaged in providing services to users -- whether through direct interaction or behind-the-scenes activities -- and contribute to the Libraries and Archives' role in the pursuit, creation, dissemination and preservation of knowledge.
