Gempeler, Constance; And Others
This 5-year departmental strategic plan (1988-1993) was developed according to the strategic planning process adopted by Arizona State University (ASU). Nine goals of ASU's Cataloging Department are presented in separate sections in this report: (1) to continue the development and improvement of the intellectual content of the online catalog so that it is accurate, controlled, and complete; (2) to increase the productivity of the department without compromising the quality of the product; (3) to provide cataloging support to outside institutions; (4) to use appropriate technology in the department to maintain the highest possible level of service; (5) to evaluate the structure of the online catalog bibliographic database (e.g., indexing, subject headings, and keyword access); (6) to provide improved bibliographic access to resources held in the library; (7) to ensure adequate space and an improved work environment for cataloging personnel; and (8) and (9) to establish and maintain good communications among departmental staff and with other departments. Each section summarizes the goal; relays the source of that goal; provides background information; describes that goal's objectives; lists strategies for meeting that objective; and mentions persons or groups involved in pursuing the objective.
