Working Group Principles

We exist as a group because
  • we are committed to a careful planning process that benefits our students to receive exemplary library services
  • we share a common goal to develop in-depth planning for our library programs
  • we believe that, by supporting each other's goals, we will each plan more effectively for our individual library programs
  • we can personally benefit from sharing our planning experiences with colleagues
  • our experiences in going through the process can be shared to benefit others in our profession
