SHARING EXPERIENCES IN MANAGING LIBRARY
The library has a strategic role and function in supporting the development of education in various levels. Moreover, the college library has a role in supporting the Tri Dharma of Higher Education, namely Education, Research and Service.
Related to that is to improve the quality of the library, the need for accreditation. This is a benchmark for achieving high quality college library standards. At the same time able to answer the times.
Mercu Buana University Library that has been accredited A still needs to develop itself. Especially for university libraries that have not been accredited A, they still need to struggle to improve the quality of their services. "It seems necessary for the Universitas Pembangunan Jaya library (UPJ) to seek experience from the management of the Mercu Buana University library," said the Head of UPJ Library, Kisman, S.IP when visiting the UMB library, Jakarta, Tuesday (18 June 2019).
According to him, a visit to the UMB library that has been accredited A is quite right. Because getting A accreditation for library services requires serious effort. This is what the UPJ library wants to try to learn during this visit.
The Head of UMB Library, Arif Budiyanto, asserted that the UMB library was indeed accredited A. However, it did not mean stopping at accreditation. Because the challenges of library users also continue to change, it is also necessary to make updates.
"We are both learning. In the UPJ library there are also some advantages that the UMB library does not have, so we need to emulate it, "said Arif Budiyanto.
