- Periodicals: Will these be reduced in number during the next 12-24 months? If so, why? What is the basis for this decision?
- A/V materials including CDs and DVDs: Some sections of this collection have already been significantly weeded; will this continue? Why?
- Is the Library committed to maintaining strong, diverse nonfiction and fiction print collections?
- What is the budget for ‘replenishing’ the collections with new items?
- Will there be balanced growth of physical and digital items?
- What role will public comment play? For instance, will the Board use public comment to modify the existing (adopted) strategic plan?
- What are the specific action steps for the objectives and priorities in the current plan?
- Is the plan viewed as an entirely new vision for services and collections at UFL or is it viewed as a strategy for allocating resources to enhance existing services and collections?
