Reporting Day K21 – Results in the light of quality improvement

At the third quarterly report of the K21 Quality Coordination Committee 2022, the leaders of the working groups reported on the results of the past quarter, ongoing work and changes.

The K21 Quality Management Coordination Committee thanked Ilona Bodnár PhD for her outstanding work as library manager and wished her a prosperous retirement.

The Accessibility Working Group sent a reminder about the availability of the documents in EDIT to assist special needs students with library services.

Members of the Primary Research Working Group are actively working on the analysis of the 2022 Student Needs and Satisfaction Survey, and preparation of a survey on the use of electronic content has begun.

A key task of the Process Management Working Group is the revision of the process inventory for the Quality Management Handbook. In preparation, a task list has been prepared. The document also includes faculty submissions with comments and suggestions on the text.

News were published on our website and a short summary film entitled 3 months – 3 minutes was sent out on the results achieved by the K21 working groups. We also contributed to the publication of news about sensitisation training to support students with special needs and about the success of the ELTE Librarian Day. We welcomed students at the beginning of the autumn semester with a presentation of the University Library Service on our website and on the Neptun platform, promoting the services offered by our libraries. In website news, we congratulated our distinguished staff and provided information on the changes to the bibliography requirements for doctoral theses.

Work on the collection and organisation of materials for the development of the „virtual Green Library” is in progress.

In their meetings, the library directors discussed the process of book acquisition with the support of the Humanity Foundation, the procurement of RFID devices, the process of student debt settlement following the change in the Student Requirements System, the publication of user training courses organised by the faculties, the journal ordering and EISZ subscription for 2023, as well as the provisions and measures expected due to the energy emergency.

During the meeting, the analytical groups for the preparation of the new strategy reported on the the work in progress.
