Millersville University Library Strategic Plan 1991-1995.
Millersville Univ., PA.
This strategic plan postulates the goals and directions that the Millersville University Library (Pennsylvania) will strive to achieve during the next 5 years and beyond; defines the central place in the campus community that the library maintains; outlines how change will affect its services, collections, staff, facilities and users; provides an understanding of how future changes in information technology and scholarly communication will affect the library; and plans ways to foster collaborative relationships that must exist among the library, other university units, and various user groups. The narrative report includes a copy of the mission statement; a brief introduction; and discussions of critical success factors (i.e., establishing collaborative relationships, staffing resources, collection development resources, physical environment resources, automation resources, and operating resources); environmental influences; and evaluation and assessment. A brief concluding statement precedes summaries of the strategic plan goals for 1991-1995 (services, collection development, staff organization and development, and physical environment) and annual goals and plans for 1991-92. Details of the strategic goals, objectives, and strategies for each of the areas are appended and a glossary of terms is provided. (ALF)
