Message from the Director
Monash University’s vision laid out in the Focus Monash Strategic Plan is to be excellent, international, enterprising and inclusive. Given the disruptive forces shaping higher education and the ambitious agenda for change set forth by Monash University Malaysia, it is imperative for the Library to remain agile and responsive to the rapidly changing context in which it operates.
Malaysia Focus Library Plan 2018-2020 provides response to Focus Monash and to Monash Malaysia Strategic Plans, outlining its priority areas of focus for the next three years.
Building upon the Library’s accomplishments in the past three years, we aim to improve the relevance and discoverability of information resources and devise effective strategies of collection development to meet the evolving needs of our users. We are determined to pursue the physical transformation of the libraries in Bandar Sunway and Johor Bahru, underpinned by contemporary technology and learner-centric design approaches to provide outstanding student experience and enhance learning engagement. Our teaching and learning approach will be student-centred, collaborative, and informed by developments in educational practice, research and information technology. We will further advance the Research Skill Development framework across the curriculum to equip Monash students and graduates with the skills and capabilities to adapt to and thrive in a competitive work environment. Through a suite a new educational programs that will be rolled out from 2018 onwards, we endeavour to promote and foster research data best practices, and enhance University reputation in research and learning.
Malaysia Focus Library Plan reaffirms the Library’s ongoing partnership with Monash University Australia Library to leverage its resources, cross-campus projects and expertise. Most importantly, the plan underpins the Library’s continued commitment to contribute to the University’s ambition to position Monash Malaysia as a leader of educational excellence and innovation in the region.
