Conference to help shape future of Libraries

Philadelphia, PA (July 14, 2011) — Drexel University’s Libraries will host a Future Search conference at the Queen Lane campus July 19 – 21, 2011. The conference will bring together around 60 individuals from the Libraries’ multiple stakeholder groups. Results from the conference will help to build a vision and directions for the future of the Libraries.

Drexel University students, faculty, staff, administrators and leaders, as well as librarians and community members were invited to attend the conference by Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki.

“The Libraries have never undertaken anything like this before and the conference results will become an instrumental part of our planning for the future,” Dean Nitecki said.

Two trained facilitators will host the three-day conference, Gerry Gorelick and Suzanne Noll a Manager of Training and Development with Drexel University’s Human Resources department.

Future Search is a large group planning meeting that has been used worldwide for over 30 years.  The task-focused meeting engages people to take a holistic view on the conference theme, “The Future of Drexel’s Libraries: Advancing the University’s Strategic Transformation.” These individuals are from different backgrounds, who share stories about their past, present and desired future to discover a common ground. This format will allow the Libraries to develop an inclusive vision and will provide Drexel University with key steps for advancing the future its Libraries.

The University is also currently developing its Drexel University Strategic Plan: 2012 – 2017.  The Plan will define initiatives, programs and specific goals that will help to propel the University already known for daring innovation and entrepreneurial spirit even further.
