This document updates Musselman Library’s 2013 Strategic Plan, retaining the strategic directions that still require attention and adding new priority areas. This update grew out of an all-staff discussion on November 3, 2016, in which library employees identified areas of success/completion and pinpointed unfinished business from the 2013-2016 plan. The staff also suggested other areas to develop. In response to these suggestions, department heads updated the 2013-2016 plan.

In this update we have:

  • Retained three strategic directions from the original plan with some changes and additions: Lifelong Learning, Sustainability, and Assessment.
  • Reframed the Leadership plank in the context of Scholarly Communications priorities.
  • Added a fifth strategic priority: Diversity and Inclusion.
