37 LIBER Strategy 2013-2015 Report back from break-out groups Ann Matheson, Marieke Willems, Susan Reilly, Astrid Verheusen,Leo Voogt, Hans Geleijnse LI

38 Key Performance Areas Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructures Reshaping the Research Library Advocacy and Commuincation

39 Discussion in 6 groups 75 participants

40 General Comments People enjoyed engagement and would like to discuss progress next years Positive comments on the general direction LIBER is going Make a clear distinction between strategy, operational plan and organisational change Current economic situation requires more library cooperation and enforces the need to make choices There are too many goals. Prioritize!

41 Other General Comments This Strategic Plan often confuses strategies of its members and LIBER itself as a foundation Clarify how goals will be realized (SMART) and that resources are/can be made available EC projects: focus on projects that are supporting the strategic plan and not vice versa ! Role of national libraries (and state libraries) not clear enough

42 Other General Comments (II) Plan is unbalanced. Not enough attention for role of library in education (e.g. Information literacy) Heritage collections and Special collections not clearly present in the 3 Action areas Existing groups could have been involved in drafting the strategy Organisational change of Steering committees is questioned

43 Other General Comments (III) Aligning the strategy of LIBER with (partner) organisations around us (eg. SPARC, CERL, Eblida) Balance needed between goals, voluntary effort of members and available resources in LIBER office See that existing groups (eg. Architecture Group, Manuscript group) are embedded in the new structure Articulate where LIBER stands for and present various choices as a logical consequence of it (e.g. Why newTEL, Europeana, COAR?)

44 Scholarly communication and Reseach Infrastructures Focus on research infrastructures = good Why building new research infrastructures? Clarify this and evaluate results of previous projects Data management issues also relevant at national and local level Importance of metadata is missing Single focus on Gold Open Access is questioned.

45 Scholarly Communication (II) Advocate massive digitisation Heritage collections could be seen as a research tool and hence as a part of the research infrastructure

46 Reshaping the Research Library This KPA is too much a potpourri Leadership Seminar should be priority Data management central skill to support KPA 1 Connect with library schools Multirank study could be used as benchmarking tool

47 Advocacy and Communication Goals are unbalanced. Prioritize! Advocacy needed on use of mobile technology Translation into 20 languages questioned Can LIBER support 25 LIBER ambassadors ? Resources? LIBER should promote that directors stimulate their staff to participate in LIBER’s group work Strategic plan requires a Communication plan
