University Library staff undergo a performance management review throughout each year, with goals and two mandatory meetings throughout the year to review job performance. Professional development needs should be discussed throughout the year as well as during the two job performance meetings. More about UVA's performance management system can be found here.
It is difficult to find data to compare staffing levels to industry benchmarks and standards because we maintain a higher level of transparency than other similar organizations. We also have more FTE staff dedicated to maintaining the preservation system than other similar organizations, so there are currently few sources for comparison.
