Last 14th February, the Council for Library Cooperation approved their 1st Strategic Plan defining the three strategic lines and nine general objectives to be developed from 2013 to 2015.
The Plan has been prepared by all the members working in the different areas of the Council and other library experts following a participative methodology aimed to gather all the information needed.
The Plan has also achieved the goal of evaluating the five first years of the Council, where for the first time every library typology is being represented (national, public, university, school and special libraries) in the same forum for sharing projects and disseminating their activities. Every document fruit of the work of these Council bodies is available at the Council’s web page. Some examples are the “Reference Frame of School Libraries”, “Report of Background of Spanish University Libraries in 2010”, “Guidelines for Cataloguing of Written Music”, “Towards Information Literacy in the Spanish Public Libraries”, “Best Practises in Multicultural Libraries”, “Social Web and Libraries”, “Professional Profiles at the Spanish Library System”, etc.
