Towards a Collections and Content Development Strategic Plan: Discussion Document Open Sessions
 

April 16, 2013

Dear Colleagues:

The Affinity Group Heads are seeking your input and perspective on the discussion document “Towards a Collections and Content Development Strategic Plan.”

Proposed recommendations in this discussion document focus on strategies for the development of intellectually coherent collections and content across the Harvard Library, and affirm the continuing importance of librarians, curators, and archivists to work closely with their faculties and other constituencies to address the dynamic changes in the research, teaching, and learning landscape. After consultation with the University community, resulting recommendations will go to the Harvard Library Board for approval.
