The Libraries’ Strategic Plan Steering Committee is please to introduce the 2017-2018 Action Plan. The Action Plan is now available as a PDF on the Libraries Strategic Planning & Initiatives web page.
The action plan includes a timeline for each action, expected deliverables, a leadership sponsor, and the action’s reflection of the Penn State Strategic Plan thematic priority or supporting element.
There are a total of 19 proposed actions — four for Advancing University Research, seven for Discovery, Access, and Preservation, and eight for Teaching and Learning.
The Strategic Plan Steering Committee has established a communication strategy to keep everyone updated on each action item and the continue to involve University Libraries faculty and staff in advancing the strategic plan. Each quarter, we will update the status of each action item.
To continue to advance the strategic plan, an action plan will be completed during the spring semester. In the fall of each year a small group will be charged to gather feedback on the current action items and to brainstorm additional action items for the upcoming action plan.
We welcome your feedback on the current action plan, process for updating the action plan, communication strategy, and revisions to the strategic plan.
