Library services (1999-2008)

In conjunction with the Consortium of Catalan University Libraries (CBUC), AQU Catalunya conducted two assessments on library services (LS) in Catalan public and private universities.

The aim of transversal assessments on LS is to verify library processes and their organisation, as well as the added value provided by libraries, in order to heighten student learning and improve research.

2nd LS assessment (2006-2008)

In 2007 the ministry in charge of universities in Catalonia assigned AQU Catalunya with the task of conducting another assessment on LS. This new assessment would take place on the new context of the process for adaptation to the EHEA. All 7 Catalan public universities took part in the assessment process conducted between February 2006 and March 2007 (the University of Barcelona, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the Technical University of Catalonia, Pompeu Fabra University, the University of Girona, the University of Lleida and Rovira i Virgili University) and 3 private universities (the Open University of Catalonia, Vic University and Abat Oliba University).
