The biggest organisational change in La Trobe University’s history provided an opportunity for the University Library not only to review its operating model and staffing structure, but also to identify the roles required now and into the future. As part of the review, the Library assessed the capabilities and skills of its staff, created opportunities for strengthening these, and identified new capabilities and skills to meet emerging priorities in the Library and the University. This paper outlines key aspects of these processes that have resulted in the development of a new workplace culture, which explicitly aligns capability, services and partnerships with the University’s strategic objectives.
