The 2018-19 Strategic Action Plan Team survey update

By: Paul C Burnell

The Strategic Action Plan team is pleased to announce that the “Submission details, FAQ, and ideas received so far” Intranet page is now live! This features information about the Libraries Strategic Plan, last year’s action items, a FAQ section, and most importantly, a list of ideas received  from colleagues.

We are looking for suggestions for action items that the University Libraries can work on in the next fiscal year to support the goals and objectives of the Libraries Strategic Plan. If you have a great idea, big or small, that you think should be explored as an action item, we want to hear about it! These action items help us to further our efforts in Discovery, Access and Preservation, Teaching and Learning, and Advancing University Research. Please submit as many ideas as you would like by Wednesday, March 21. :

Questions? Please email the Strategic Action Plan Team at or contact team members directly.

We look forward to hearing from you!
