Service Matters: Single Service Point as a Collaborative and Professional Learning Initiative for Service Excellence
Chauvet, Marianne; Bourbous, Vicki; Liston, Frances
Journal of Access Services, v13 n2 p80-90 2016
Changes and innovations in higher education learning and teaching acted as a catalyst for rethinking the way in which service was delivered to library clients at Australian Catholic University. The Single Service Point was piloted at one campus library in 2014 to develop a best practice approach to service delivery. The merging of cultures within the library environment was achieved through committed leadership, with staff agreeing on shared values and goals and applying the university mission. All staff were responsible for seeking solutions to challenges and becoming autonomous in their professional development and training. Overall, in a Single Service Point model, service efficiency, excellence, and quality increased through staff teamwork, contribution, and collaboration.
