Libraries Identify Priorities for Future

Drexel University Libraries is transforming into a learning enterprise. As this transformation continues, new strategic directions have emerged to set priorities for the Libraries’ future.

Conference Builds Shared Vision of Libraries’ Future

Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki, addresses attendees at the close of the conference.

Philadelphia, PA (July 25, 2011) – Drexel University Libraries concluded a milestone event towards shaping the future of the organization on Thursday, July 21, 2011. The event, a Future Search conference, brought together nearly 60 people, representing the diverse stakeholders of the Libraries, at the Queen Lane campus of the Drexel University College of Medicine.

Highly interactive, the process took a holistic look at the theme, The Future of Drexel’s Libraries: Advancing the University’s Strategic Transformation. Attendees reviewed shared past and present experiences to reach a common ground in identifying an exciting future for the Libraries.  This new future emphasizes collaboration, leadership, integration of technologies and curation of information resources, as well as the development of innovative spaces to advance teaching, learning and scholarship at Drexel and in the broader communities. This was accomplished through working exercises, small group discussions and creative reporting of insights.
