4. Library Strategy and Key Issues for the Future

In times of turbulent change, strategy is becoming ever more important for
organisations in order to survive. Libraries in (higher) education are
facing several challenges at the same time: the world of learning is
changing rapidly; the demands from researchers are becoming more critical;
technology offers possibilities but at the same time developments in this
area are dazzling; many libraries face budget cuts. How to deal with these
complex and intertwined issues is the topic of the course. Leading speakers
will lecture about strategic issues, presenting their vision for the coming
3 to 5 years. These visions will be discussed, enabling managers to
anticipate trends when planning and formulating their own library policy.
The course is an ideal opportunity to get a broad view of where libraries
are heading in general and how to use these visions in formulating a
strategy for particular libraries.

When and where
Tilburg University, the Netherlands. Sunday evening 15 up to and including
Tuesday 17 August 2004.

Target group
Directors, other senior managers, and those aspiring to these positions from
academic/research libraries. At the same time the course is of interest to
parties working closely together with libraries in dealing with the
challenges they face, notably senior staff from computer centres as well as
senior managers from publishing houses.

The first day will be dedicated to broad strategic issues (strategy,
technology, learning, research). The second day explores major trends in
four areas that are rapidly developing (scholarly communication, metrics,
knowledge management, library strategy in times of budget cuts).

Course director
Michael Breaks, University librarian, Heriot-Watt University, UK, has wide
experience of library management and has been University Librarian of
Heriot-Watt University since 1985. He has been a member of a number of UK
policy-making committees.

Friday 20 August 2004.

Target group
Library managers/directors and other senior managers from academic and
research libraries involved with strategic change.

resistance, communication, human resource aspects of change, human resource
management, and improvement programmes.

at the University of Leeds, UK, has wide experience of a variety of academic
