In 2013, all members of the Library team convened for a series of discussions, brainstorming sessions and workshops around our strategy for improvement for the coming years.
The resulting Library Strategic Plan, designed to guide our activities through the year 2020, articulates an ambitious vision for the coming years. To assist us in realizing that vision, the plan set out five key areas of focus, each of which is further divided into a set of key action items.
