Tis the season of strategic planning. Following SUNY's efforts, "The Power of SUNY Libraries - A Strategic Plan for 2011-2014" has been going through multiple drafts. Led by the SUNY Council of Library Directors' Executive Board with assistance from SUNYConnect Advisory Council (S.A.C.) and SUNYLA representatives, the document focuses on the following big ideas -SUNYConnect Logo

  • One Vision
  • One Voice
  • Shared Expertise
  • Shared Resources

A webinar in the first part of 2011 will serve as a forum for associating programmatic/operational ideas and projects with these ideas. The SUNY library community will brainstorm ideas to put the plan into practice.

In that context, SUNYergy editors offer the following (opinionated) questions that seem to be coming to the fore:

  • Do the advantages and efficiencies possible with a move to a single SUNY bibliographic file outweigh issues related to campus autonomy/unique data?
  • If seen as a positive approach, what else needs to be in place for additional patron-drive acquisition projects?
  • How do we utilize expertise across campuses to progress with 21st century digital library initiatives?
  • One vision, one voice within the context of new discovery systems, new library management systems?
  • How do we get to facilitating group decision making so new initiatives can progress faster?link to the Power of SUNY web
  • Can we "develop and promote SUNYConnect in order to expand access to resources" in the wake of ongoing budget cuts?

You can add to this list. Your ideas and answers are even more essential to the strategic directions for our libraries and our nascent SUNY library system.
