The University of Kansas Libraries, in consultation with Edwards Campus administration, plans to implement a new service model for the Regents Center Library, located in Overland Park, Kan., beginning this fall. The new model will replace the physical branch service model with a consultant librarian, as well as enhanced remote delivery services for electronic and current physical collections, to support faculty, staff and students on the Edwards Campus.
“This updated service model aligns with KU Libraries’ efforts to leverage the new and emerging technologies in support of our users’ research and learning needs,” said Lorraine J. Haricombe, dean of KU Libraries. “We are committed to providing excellent service to faculty, staff and students at the Edwards Campus, while ensuring the most efficient and effective means of operations.”
In this model, the existing small print collection has been removed from the library and access will be provided to electronic and physical collections from the Lawrence campus. A librarian will remain on the Edwards Campus to assist with teaching, research and learning needs.
Transition to the new service model will take place during the fall 2014 semester and will be effective on January 1, 2015.
