PLSR Implementation Plans Presented to COLAND

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

On Friday, July 12, DPI staff John DeBacher and Ben Miller presented a draft implementation plan for carrying out recommendations included in the Public Library System Redesign Steering Committee Final Report to the Council on Libraries and Network Development (COLAND). The plan includes a column with dates to indicate when work on individual recommendations will begin, and when subsequent activities to carry out the recommendations are anticipated. 

A number of the individual recommendations - including many of the related activities -include "Implementation Teams" in the process. Those teams will be comprised of individuals in the library community who are identified to be stakeholders or to have relevant expertise and experience in the activity area. As those specific activities draw near, DPI staff will put out calls for nominations for each Implementation Team - please do not contact us prior to that formal call to express interest. The calls for nominations will be shared here as well as through related DPI communications channels as aspects of follow up activities unfold. Selections will be made based on considerations to foster a balance between users of the System Services (public libraries), system employees, as well as geography and size.

To repeat, please take a look at the Implementation Plan, note the timeframe for the Recommendations and their Activities, and watch this space for the Implementation Teams's calls for nominations as well as for announcements and reports of PLSR project developments.
