RSM library strategy

Library strategy 2017-2022 approved by RSM council on 18 July 2017

The RSM Library Services (RSMLS) Strategy for the next five years (2017-2022) has been developed in the context of the Library’s overall aim of offering high quality library services and being responsive to its users. In summary these are:

• Redeveloping the physical Library at 1 Wimpole Street
• Developing the concept of ‘My Library’ (as part of a wider ‘MyRSM’ initiative) to provide a personalised space for information and education resources
• Improving the user experience, by creating a virtual helpdesk
• Improving the visibility and discovery of information resources 

RSMLS is an integral part of the Society and supports a wide variety of innovative activities to provide access to information and resources anywhere in the world. A dedicated library team supports users (such as a CPD accredited information skills programme) and offers advice on how to satisfy their information needs. It provides services to users in support of evidence based practice, education and continuing professional development. RSMLS plays an important role in delivering the Society’s mission of improving health through education, by providing both facilities and services to support learning and research for today’s practitioners.
