Strategic Plan: July 2010 to June 2013
California State Library
On June 15-16, 2010, California State Librarian Stacey A. Aldrich, initiated a strategic planning summit in Sacramento, California. The purpose of the summit was to build the future pathways for the California State Library (CSL)--one of California's oldest cultural institutions. This was accomplished by developing a CSL strategic plan (values, mission, vision, strategic focus areas, goals, and objectives) covering the period July 2010 to June 2013. Fifty-five stakeholders representing regional libraries, information technology, education, law, training, State Library Board, library associations, and various CSL divisions, contributed to the development of the strategic plan. This strategic plan is a management tool for improving the CSL system over the next three years. The following strategic focus areas represent the framework for the seven goals and 30 objectives that serve as pathways for the future of the California State Library system: (1) Marketing & Outreach to increase awareness of CSL services; (2) Partnership & Collaborations to leverage resources; (3) CSL Services to reach more Californians and align with libraries' needs; (4) Internal Operations to equip library staff for success; and (5) Technology to increase access to content and library resources. Appended are: (1) Language of the Process; and (2) Contributors to the Strategic Plan.
