Mapping the future strategic direction for academic and research libraries

Added by Sarah on 07 August 2009 10:42

The British Library, JISC, the RIN, RLUK and SCONUL are taking forward a joint initiative that will help to map the future strategic direction for academic and research libraries in the UK.

The broad aims of the initiative are:

  • to gather and analyse evidence about current and future trends that are likely to have an impact on the future of academic and research libraries in the UK; and
  • to formulate strategic responses to help libraries respond creatively to key changes in the wider environment, so that they continue to develop and sustain effective levels and types of information services to support students and researchers in the HE and related sectors.

A contractor will be appointed to manage the project in August 2009. The project will run from September 2009 to April 2011.

For more information, see our Towards the academic library of the future project page.

Enquiries should be directed to Aaron Griffiths.
