California Digital Library’s (CDL) Publishing & Special Collections Group Releases 2019/2020 Service Roadmaps

From CDL:

CDL’s Publishing & Special Collections (P&SC) Group is excited to announce that our 2019/2020 service roadmaps are now publicly available:

As was the case last year, these roadmaps reflect our goals and priorities for the current timeframe and contain:

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


Trello is once again the platform for our roadmaps, so the structure will be familiar to those who followed our work last year. Cards migrate across the board as they are prioritized and worked on, with a card moving, for example, from the “Planned for FY 2019/2010” list to the “Recently Released” list as it is scheduled, worked on, and completed.  As was the case before, we will evaluate new potential activities and add them to the roadmap mid-year when warranted.

P&SC roadmaps are public–anyone can click on a card and see what we’re doing.  To get automatically notified about updates related to a task, create a free Trello account and select the “Watch” button in the card for that task, as shown in the screenshot below.
