This page makes interesting reading, especially the submissions by researchers from each discipline during the consultation phase.

The Consultation paper is the one I have suggested as background reading for Liaison Planning day next month.

It's pretty exciting to see a University thinking at a strategic level about where they want to be in the future and obviously considering Libraries as central to their mission. The Library committee response was disappointing compared to the original discussion paper. I had wondered where the phrase "written by committee" came from , but I think I know now.
I think many of the issues we as professionals are confronting now require strategic planning, looking ahead 5-10 years and thinking about where we want to be, rather than making decisions as things arise.
