Innovation at Lancaster University Library

As part of our commitment to our user experience and ongoing staff development and engagement an Innovation Group was formed from all grades and teams across the library. The aim of this group was to take a fresh approach to innovation in the Library, using a flat hierarchical structure to enable us to foster a truly inclusive ethos of collaboration.


In forming this group we hope not only to implement some great ideas, but also to improve the working culture of the library as a whole – encouraging autonomy, creativity and engagement.

Initial members were selected from volunteers and will be reviewed on an annual basis to allow different people to get involved and ensure that we are always evolving and improving the way that we work.

Details of our membership and a bit about the individual who make up the team can be found on our ‘Who We Are’ page
