Community Renewal

Over the past year the Council of Federal Libraries has led the process of renewing and redefining the role of librarians and library services with reference to the information management model of the Government of Canada.

The objectives of this process are threefold:

  1. to achieve a consensus in the community of federal librarians and library services about the strategic role of the library profession for the business of government,

  2. to identify the changes that the library community wants to bring to the practice of librarianship in the context of Information Management and

  3. to communicate this consensus and change strategy to key senior management stakeholders across government so that they are aware of our renewed role and the opportunities librarians and library services present for enabling GoC programs and services

A Community Renewal Action Team, under the leadership of Donald Bidd, has consulted the community widely and conducted research on key trends and directions in librarianship. The result is a change management strategy now available on the site of the CFL www.collectionscanada.ca/cfl-cbgf/s37-171-e.html. This strategy has been endorsed by the Planning and Priorities Committee and the Steering Committee of the Council of Federal Libraries.

I invite you to review the change management strategy carefully and to take every opportunity to communicate it make it known within your department, to senior and middle management, to your staff, and to your colleagues in IM and IT. If you have any comments or questions, please share them with myself bolar.rita@ic.gc.ca or Donald Bidd bidd.donald@tbs-sct.gc.ca. With this renewed repositioning and change management strategy as a foundation, the Planning and Priorities Committee is now in the process of identifying a short list of strategic initiatives the community of federal librarians can propose to advance the business and IM priorities of government.
