In: Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) -- Governance

Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

Discussion Goals for July 2013 - June 2015

by Cindi Blyberg on Wed, Sep 25, 2013 at 08:14 am

Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

Hi everyone,

Rachel and I took the notes from our last meeting and incorporated them into Adriene's reworking of our goals.  Rachel also changed the language a bit to make them sound like goals rather than things we just *do* as a matter of course.

I want to reiterate that the text below is a reworking of the goal statements from the longer Strategic Plan document that was put together by leadership and membership.  The division's principle "deliverables" remain the same--education, publications, networking--and the other ideas, collaboration, advocacy, and infrastructure, have been central to the Board's and the membership's work over the last few years.  We hope that this text reflects the LITA gestalt, and we welcome everyone's comments.

The dates at the top reflect the leadership turnover that we have as an organization.  We are not suggesting that the goals be torn down every year (or every other year) and re-written, but we hope that putting a shorter timeframe on them will mean that thoughtful discussion and re-affirming will happen with each new President, ensuring that the goals are front and center, framing our work.

If these are agreeable to you, we will need a motion and a second, then we can discuss and vote. 

LITA members who aren't board members who are viewing this document, we welcome your comments, too!

 

LITA’s Goals for June 2013- June 2015

Collaboration & Networking


Foster collaboration and encourage networking among our members and beyond so the full potential of technologies in libraries can be realized.

Education & Sharing of Expertise

Offer education, publications, and events to inspire and enable members to improve technology integration within their libraries.

Advocacy

Advocate for meaningful legislation, policies, and standards that positively impact on the current and future capabilities of libraries that promote equitable access to information and technology.

Infrastructure

Improve LITA’s organizational capacity to serve, educate, and create community for its members.
