New Report: “Assessment of the Library of Congress’s Digital Strategy”
Despite these achievements, more work remains to clearly connect the Digital Collections Strategy and Digitization Strategy to the Library’s overall strategic planning and governance processes. Not doing so puts the Library at greater risk of not meeting its overall strategic goals.
The Library Would Benefit from More Clearly Connecting Its Digital Collections Strategy and Digitization Strategy to Its Overall Strategic Planning Efforts
The Digital Collections Strategy and the Digitization Strategy play significant parts in the Library’s ability to meet its overall strategic goals, but LCSG has not followed SPPM’s strategic planning guidance and made the linkages clear. This includes linkages between the overall strategic goals, the performance goals in LCSG’s 2019-2023 directional plans, and the objectives in the Digital Collections Strategy and Digitization Strategy.
