Strategies 2001: Colorado Libraries in the 21st Century. Strategic Plan for Library Services in Colorado, March 1996.

This document describes an action plan developed by the Colorado Council for Library Development (CCLD) Long Range Planning Committee. Before devising "Strategies 2001," the committee analyzed current strengths and weaknesses in Colorado library services, created a collective vision of future library services for the state, and developed plans for achieving that vision. The vision focuses on patrons having reliable and multifaceted access to information and receiving materials and answers promptly and cordially. The action plan itself lists in narrative format specific strategies for achieving objectives in leadership, services, and resource sharing, then charts the accompanying responsibilities of Colorado library professional organizations and of libraries at the local, state, and system levels. Appendices include a glossary of terms and definitions, a list of current library planning documents and intellectual freedom statements, a list of Strategies 2001 committee members, and a short history of library planning in Colorado.
