Task Force On The Future Of Academic Libraries In Florida
Chancellor Frank T. Brogan’s and Chancellor Will Holcombe’s Charge to the Task Force
Determine a vision and develop a strategic plan for the future of academic library access, resources and service in Florida that encompasses emerging trends and changing realities in the areas of instruction, research, technology and public services within the context of the academic mission. The plan needs to assess ramifications of the identified trends and realities on currently utilized tools and organizations and the impact on our students, faculty and academic community.
In addition to including strategies and timelines for accomplishing the goals included in the strategic plan, the plan shall also address the establishment of a library technology organizational structure that will meet the needs of academic libraries in both the Florida College System and the State University System in a manner that is more cost-effective than the current organizational structure. The plan must include the resolution of identified challenges, including, but not limited to, governance, staffing, funding, and logistics.
