Strengthen Capacity

As changes in research, teaching, and learning continue to accelerate, Canada’s universities require a wider variety of expertise from their research libraries. CARL fosters development of expertise and capacity for new and emerging roles.

  • Support leadership and workforce development across the broad spectrum of competencies required for success in contemporary research libraries.
  • Encourage research into areas of strategic focus to CARL.
  • Advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in research libraries.
  • Enable research libraries’ work toward reconciliation, Indigenization, and decolonization, framed by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

The lead committee on this topic is the Strengthening Capacity Committee.
