NCompass Live: Library Planning: A Customized Program for Success

612
-1

Published on

The Guidelines For Public Library Accreditation by the Nebraska Library Commission, 2013 acknowledge that library services and programs are community-based and unique to each library. This means that knowing what a library plans is crucial to knowing if it has fulfilled its mission, and applications for accreditation under these new Guidelines will require a copy of the library’s strategic plan. Denise Harders and Sarah Warneke, Nebraska Regional Library System directors, and Richard Miller and Laura Johnson from the Nebraska Library Commission will discuss the importance of planning and introduce a new program they will be offering to libraries to make the vital activity of planning simpler and more immediate.
