State Library of South Australia Strategic Plan 2014–17: Delivering the Future

The State Library of South Australia has released its Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 which identifies five priorities that focus on our customers, collections, digital responsibilities, cultural role and the people and partners we need to make it happen. While it builds on our previous plan it also signals some key changes and initiatives.

Delivering the future
Delivering the future
  • Increasing our collecting of contemporary digital content in all formats and getting more of our heritage content digitised and available online.
  • A stronger focus on our unique collections of South Australiana to ensure current and future generations of South Australians can access and learn from them.
  • Engaging with children and their families as the next generation of users so they know about their history and place in the world.
  • Revitalising our buildings as part of creating a vibrant cultural community place. In particular revamping the ground floor of the Spence wing and Mortlock wing as contemporary places for interacting with and experiencing knowledge and ideas.
  • Repositioning and strengthening our family history service.
  • Building the solution for the long term preservation and storage of our digital and physical collections.

To activate the Strategic Plan a Project Delivering the Future has been created and in the first instance will look at four specific areas.

1. How will our buildings deliver?
2. How will our ICT deliver?
3. How will our structure and services deliver?
4. How will we deliver as a Learning organisation ?

Additional information regarding the Strategic Plan can be viewed here.

A number of communication activities such as surveys, feedback sessions and informal catch-ups have been planned to enable stakeholders and the community to engage in the projects.
