Library Planning

November 13, 2007 at 1:50 am 1 comment

The wiki is up for Central TAFE’s day of planning “To establish Library goals and projects to meet the College Strategic Plans for 2008”. The list of what we want to achieve is growing ever longer and I am afraid that, as was the case last year, few of these objectives will be realised.

I do hope our planning meeting doesn’t result in this:

Discussed on the blog Librarian in Black was Michael Stephens’s keynote address Ten Technologies: Ideas to Improve Library Productivity. There are some wonderful ideas and comments here – not least being his closing statements of library philosophy: Learn to Learn. Adapt to Change. Scan the Horizon.

Other ideas for library planning come from Katherine’s blog, Librarian’s Matter; David Lewis’ A model for academic libraries 2005 to 2025 and Part one and Part two of staff responses to the McMaster University Library Strategic planning process.

iLibrarian also has links to presentations from the Hawaii Library Association Conference.

    Good to see you still blogging, Maeve.

    I really liked Sarah HJ’s presentation about the digital branch of the library – much food for thought with planning
