1 Aintree Library and Information Resource Centre (LIRC) Strategy Introduction The Aintree Library and Information Resource Centre (LIRC) is a multidisciplinary library facility based within the Clinical Sciences Centre at Aintree Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The LIRC is available to all staff and students who are either working or studying on the Aintree site and Teaching PCT staff and students. The service is managed by Edge Hill University Learning Services (LS), on behalf of Aintree Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Edge Hill Faculty of Health, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Liverpool. Mission Statement The Aintree LIRC s mission is to provide a multi-disciplinary, responsive and forward looking learning environment for all users. This responsive learning environment is based upon inclusivity and the proactive gathering of feedback from stakeholder groups to ensure a flexible and user focused approach to service delivery and development. Introduction to the Strategy The purpose of the strategy is to provide a framework for the development of library and information services at Aintree. The library currently has four partners and this strategy will ensure the service is able to provide appropriate and developmental services to support clinical practice, education and training, the quality agenda and research. This strategy has 6 key themes which are based on the operating environment of the LIRC and North West Health Care Library Unit s themes. It is intended that the strategy will take the service through the next three years and focuses on current practice and future developments. Environmental Factors Learning Services Learning Services is central support department with Edge Hill University. Higher Education library and information services work within a fast paced changing environment, however, we bring together teams and learning support areas to provide more holistic and effective services, resources, support and expertise for all users in order to meet and anticipate developing learning and teaching needs. 1

2 Learning Services key purpose is to support learning and to develop a responsive learning environment for all, through services and facilities, research and development, information and support. The service incorporates libraries and information provision, learning support, ICT user support for learning and teaching, e- learning development and support, media services, and dyslexia support. These services are currently provided in the University Library and Learning Innovation Centre (LINC) on the Ormskirk campus, at the Woodlands Centre Library, Chorley, and at the Library and Information Resource Centre (LIRC) at University Hospital Aintree, as well as remotely through service level agreements with partners and electronic services. We aim to help users make best use of our services, whether on site at Aintree or remotely through our extensive e-resources. As a service we work with a quality framework of reflection and planning, and use our Annual Monitoring and Review (AMR) process to continuous review our services and support and plan objectives that align to our partners and the national picture in terms of NHS library services. The AMR meeting involves the whole Aintree team and forms part of both our staffing and service objectives for the coming year. The AMR report is available as part of the LIRC Annual report. Health Care Libraries Unit Strategy (HCLU) In 2009, the regional unit who has overall responsibility of the development of NHS library services in the North West, published their strategic vision to guide and support libraries for the next five years. The North West strategy underpins the development of services at Aintree LIRC. Central to all developments at NHS organisations is better patient care and best evidence underpins all effective and efficient clinical, commissioning and policy decision making 1 NHS Library Quality Assurance Framework England (LQAF) The framework was introduced in 2010, with a phased implementation and using self assessment. The NHS LQAF aims to support innovation and new service development by defining, recognising and rewarding innovation in NHS library and knowledge services 2. North West NHS Libraries undertook the self assessment in September 2010 with a requirement to provide evidence in eleven must have criteria. Following verification by the Health Care Libraries Unit, our service was 90% compliant with the national standards. We are above the percentage compliant rate of the North West and in relation to the rest of the North West s 1 HCLU Strategy 2 LQAQ 2

3 acute libraries; we are 9 th out of 26 th. It is our aspiration to improve this percentage and ranking using this strategy over the next three years. Key Aims To provide access to the information needed to support and develop safe, high quality patient care, learning, teaching and research, within the resources available to the service. To develop, monitor and evaluate services to match the changing information needs within the NHS and multi professional health education and support the NHS in the development of the workforce To enable the user to understand and utilise effectively the full range of information services and to foster the acquisition of skills for independence in lifelong learning. To provide a proactive and responsive outreach Clinical Information Service to support the specific information and training needs of healthcare professionals across the NHS partner organisations. To promote the library services and the national and local electronic resources available to all NHS staff across the partner organisations To operate and deliver services in a friendly and efficient manner according to the equal opportunities philosophy and policies of Edge Hill University, Learning Services Customer Services Excellence award and the values of our NHS partners To provide access to a wide range of information sources through ICT.
