AALL Thinks Strategically

Next year the AALL 2005-2010 Strategic Directions come to an end. AALL members, with the Executive Board Strategic Directions Committee, will craft a new Strategic Directions plan. The Strategic Directions Committee has created a new blog, Thinking Strategically, to get the ideas and conversations started. Visit the blog and share your thoughts on the first three questions:

1. How do we seize the moment and make it our own?

2. Where do we, law librarians, want to be in the next 3 years?

3. What is required of us to create the world that we envision?
