Depository Library Council Releases Its Vision Discussion Paper
From the Depository Library Council:
The members of the Depository Library Council are pleased to announce that our vision discussion paper entitled "The Federal Government Information Environment of the 21st Century: Towards a Vision Statement and Plan of Action for Federal Depository Libraries.
Discussion Paper" is now posted on the GPO web site at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fdlp/pubs/dlc_vision_09_02_2005.pdf.
While this discussion paper may fall short of the comprehensive "vision" statement to which DLC initially aspired, it represents the necessary first step on the journey toward an agreed-upon vision statement and an accompanying action plan. Members of the Depository Library Council hope we have succeeded in our attempt to 1) define the current situation; 2) suggest new and reinvigorated roles for federal depository libraries; and 3) challenge others to do the same.
We welcome continued discussion of this paper on the DLC blog at http://dlcvisionoutline.blogspot.com. Additionally, we welcome discussion on govdoc-l, lawlib-l and other listservs to which this announcement is posted.
We look forward to our discussions at the fall DLC meeting. We very much hope that out of those discussions and other input we will be able to formulate a vision statement and plan of action that will ensure the continuing relevance of the FDLP to the public's ability to get and use federal government information.
