The State Library has released a new vision statement, Future Directions – Towards 2030, our strategic plan to revitalise our services and how we interact with our customers and the community. The vision identifies five key priorities for the Library.


We will continue to develop contemporary and diverse collections that meet legislative requirements and capture South Australian stories. We will care for and preserve all collections to make sure that they are available for current and future generations.


We will connect with communities to provide opportunities for discovery and use of the stories and information revealed through our collections and services. This engagement will occur in our buildings and increasingly online and through our partners.


We will collaborate with partners to increase opportunities for the community to explore our collections through exhibitions, public programs, and events, and through the activation of our unique buildings and spaces.


We will improve our organisational capacity and empower our people to deliver high-quality services and experiences to the community by embracing innovation, systems improvement, and staff development.
