PLAI-Bicol Region Librarians Council Seminar Workshop on----April 18, 2012, Legaspi City
According to Lesley Barker, eHow Contributing Writer, … development planning refers to the strategic measurable goals that a person, organization or community plans to meet within a certain amount of time. Usually the development plan includes time- based benchmarks. It generally also includes the criteria that will be used to evaluate whether or not the goals were actually met. on-development-planning.html (Accessed April 11,2010)Lesley Barker on-development-planning.html
According to Roy Tennant (2005), In this world of ubiquitous and fluid content creation and distribution opportunities, only the flexible will survive. Those who can effectively use new modes of communication will be the primary creators of content…and librarians who can make sense of it all on behalf of their clientele will remain treasured assets to society. In such a world, those who thrive on change are king.
