University of Cyprus Library receives award
The Library of the University of Cyprus has received the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) award “Recognised for Excellence” with three stars.
The University of Cyprus Library is the first library in Cyprus or Greece to be awarded this level of distinction.
The Library has achieved the distinction, as administrative unit. This distinction is the second out of three EFQM award levels regarding the administration and management of organisations or parts of them.
“This achievement is a great honor for the Library as well as the University of Cyprus, however its greatest value lies in the fact that many areas of improvement have been identified for which the Library has either taken action or will do so immediately”, a University press release says.
The Library was evaluated by a team of official EFQM assessors through a submission report and during a site-visit that took place on 25 and 26 November 2009.
