SCONUL's Strategy

Return to About Sconul

SCONUL’s Strategy 2016-2019: Collaborating for Change outlines six programmes of work on which the organisation will focus its energies during 2016-19. Those are:

  1. Vision for the development of the academic library and librarian
  2. A national digital library for UK higher education
  3. Programme of leadership capacity building across the sector
  4. Strategic workforce planning for the sector
  5. Campaign on the cost of content
  6. Advocacy based on the programmes above

To deliver this work, we have established a number of strategic groups:

The strategy was developed in close consultation with members. The results of an initial survey identifying members’ strategic priorities can be found here, and a summary of a meeting which brought together Strategy Group members to further develop those ideas is available here

With CILIP, we jointly convene a Health and Social Care Strategy Group which brings together representatives form informaiton professionals in the health sector to respond to consultations and share and disseminate information.
