Senior Management Team

Role

SMT (Senior Management Team) is a primary policy making group in the Library. Its actions and decisions set the framework within which initiatives and projects are progressed throughout the whole of the UCL family of libraries. SMT also has the remit to oversee and monitor the Library’s successful performance against targets, set either by UCL or by external regulatory and other bodies. The Leadership Team is a companion committee, which oversees the development and implementation of the Library Strategy. 

Purpose of SMT meetings

  • To discuss and agree changes to Library Services policy positions and to discuss and plan the introduction of new policies.
  • To discuss and agree the position of Library Services on and response to institutional initiatives. In such instances, the aim of any SMT discussion is to ensure equity, consistency and coherence library-wide.
  • To discuss the impact and the implications for Library Services of new ideas and initiatives, emanating from a decision or development at UCL's senior management level, or within the regional/national/international HE/NHS environment, and where appropriate to plan the actions to be taken.
  • To discuss, agree and plan the implementation of policy directives received from the Professional Services Leadership Team.
  • To discuss and agree priorities within Library Services and ensure that resources are allocated appropriately to reflect these priorities.
  • To decide major resource allocation issues and to review income/expenditure against financial targets as needed.
  • To provide a forum for progressing bids for external funding.
  • To provide a forum for information exchange between SMT members about major new developments and ideas, so that the linkages between different areas of work are made and so that the efforts of staff are most usefully directed.
