For the First Time the California Digital Library (CDL) Publishing & Special Collections Group Publicly Shares Service Roadmaps

From a CDLInfo Post by Lisa Schiff:

CDL’s Publishing & Special Collections (P&SC) Group is headed in a new direction! Our team now has publicly shared roadmaps for each of our five primary services:

These roadmaps reflect our goals and associated priorities for the current academic year and contain:

  • high level enhancements and new features,
  • significant maintenance tasks,
  • major projects, and
  • substantial areas of R&D.


We believe organizing our work in this way will bring a host of benefits, including:

  • prioritizing high level tasks within the context of ongoing needs and requests;
  • increasing transparency with UC library partners, administrative stakeholders, contributors, end users, and funders; and
  • adjusting priorities as needed in response to important unexpected requests and opportunities.

Work on the 2019/2020 roadmaps will begin in early April.
