Strategic Plan Update: Action Plan progress as of June 30, 2017

The June 30, 2017 action plan update for the University Libraries 2014-2019 Strategic Plan is now available as a PDF on the Libraries’ Strategic Planning & Initiatives web page.

The 2016-2017 Action Plan began with 33 actions — 11 for Advancing University Research; 9 for Discovery, Access and Preservation; and 13 for Teaching and Learning.  Of these, 21 of the actions were substantially completed and/or operationalized and 11 more are in process or in an assessment phase.  Only one item was not initiated in order to take advantage of recently recruited expertise in the areas of digital preservation and collection strategy.

The Action Plan for 2017-2018 is forthcoming.

We welcome your feedback on the current update of the action plan, process for updating the action plan, communications strategy, and revision to the strategic plan. Please feel free to send your comments or question to any member of the Strategic Plan Steering Committee (
