MnDOT Library Publishes Strategic Plan Report
by Sheila Hatchell
MnDOT Library completed its strategic planning process earlier this summer. Through the synthesis of findings from an employee survey, interviews of senior leadership, a focus group of younger employees, an extensive environmental scan, and a SWOT analysis, the following 6 goals were identified:
- Digitization: Expand availability of digital documents
- Technology: Overcome technical barriers
- Marketing and Communications: Develop a marketing plan to raise awareness of library services and resources
- Collection: Refocus the library collection
- Services & Staffing: Align services and staffing to support library functions
- Physical Space: Repurpose library space to meet customers' needs
The next step is to create a business plan that will identify the steps and resources to fulfill the goals.
The library would like to thank everyone who participated in this process, as we create a 21st century library to support the department’s information needs, now and into the future.
The full report is available at http://dot.state.mn.us/research/reports/2017/201736.pdf and also in the library catalog.
There are many ways to contact the library to ask a question or get assistance researching a topic: by phone at 651-366-3791, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by request form at Ask a Librarian, or in person (8:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday). The library is located in Room 175 of the Transportation Building in St. Paul.
