Statistics and Impact
OU Libraries use academic sprints to map out quarterly projects based on the libraries’ strategic pillars. Each project is approved by the Dean and the senior leadership team and designed to support the libraries core services and mission. Library IT staff serve on matrixed teams as experts in library technology and work collaboratively to implement these projects. Their contributions require an understanding of library systems, workflows, physical and virtual infrastructure, as well as secure access to accounts.
