HathTrust Launching an “In-Depth Process of Exploration, Discovery, and Strategic Visioning, to Begin Our Next 15 Years”
The world has changed dramatically in the 15 years since HathiTrust’s creation and even more so in the 5 years since we adopted our 2019-2023 Strategic Directions. Despite the global disruption and changes of recent years — as well as 47% membership growth — we have followed the course laid out in that plan. We are now poised to draw on the strength of our accomplishments and prepare to serve the future needs of our membership. To do so, we are launching an in-depth process of exploration, discovery, and strategic visioning, to begin our next 15 years.
What We’re Doing
We’ve partnered with Athenaeum 21, a long-standing digital strategy and technology planning consultancy and collaborator in the library and cultural heritage community. They will guide the 3-part collaborative visioning process that will take place through the end of 2023. During this process, we will connect with people throughout our member libraries — subject librarians, deans, collection managers, directors — as well as with HathiTrust staff and industry peers.
