|« Bringing Faculty into the Process||Why the New Directions Initiative? »|
To achieve our goals and objectives, we need a process - an open process - and the New Directions Coordinating Committee has been working to develop one. This is not a final plan, but an evolving one. The committee will modify and improve the process based on your feedback and ideas. Here is the process as it currently stands:
1. Discovery (October 2007-February 2008)
This is the phase where we provide opportunities to "learn about and reflect on the shifting Library environment."
2. Processing (February 2008-June 2008)
This is the phase where we engage staff expertise to work toward "a shared understanding" and "to develop possibilities for new and enhanced services, or new ways existing services can be provided." All of the ideas generated during the Discovery phase will be discussed, combined, reconfigured, grouped, focused, etc. during this phase.
3. Action (June 2008 forward)
And it all leads up to this phase, where we "implement our new directions developed by staff."
So, there is the tentative process - but we want your feedback. What do you think of the process? How could we improve it? What is missing? Join the discussion by commenting below.
