Economics and Management Library

Vision for 2025 and action areas

The library team held a virtual workshop in January 2022 to jointly develop its vision for 2025 and set the course for the next four years of the library's work. In preparation, trends and stakeholder expectations were analyzed and benchmark evaluations conducted. Based on the results, a critical SWOT analysis was conducted of the library. From this, we derived our vision for 2025 as well as our key action areas.
