Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver. State Library and Adult Education Office.
This Strategic Plan for library development in Colorado includes a specific set of strategic directions for the next four years with suggested key activities to implement them, as well as a set of timeless principles upon which library development and service are based. The Long Range Planning Strategic Directions, 2001-2004, are outlined with key activities for 14 areas: Advocacy; Funding; Standards-Based Education; Information Literacy; Family Literacy and Reading Readiness; Retention and Recruitment; Continuing Education; Service to Aging Populations; Services to Underserved Populations; Services to Minorities; Technology and Connectivity Planning; Access to Information; Delivery of Information Resources and Materials; and Colorado Library Law. Ongoing professional principles that should serve as a foundation for strong library services provided to the resident of Colorado, outlined in an appendix, focus on three main areas: leadership, services, and resource sharing. Three additional appendices include the Library Bill of Rights, listing of principles that libraries in the United States should embrace, and glossary and definitions. (AEF)
