HathiTrust in the Future: Strategic Visioning Kicks Off!

April 21, 2023

We recently announced the launch of an in-depth process of exploration, discovery, and strategic visioning that will take place through the end of 2023. To guide this effort, we have partnered with Athenaeum21 (A21), a long-standing collaborator in the library and cultural heritage community. Throughout the project’s three phases — Discovery/Listening, Visioning, and Sharing — we will connect with people throughout HathiTrust member libraries, including subject librarians, deans, collection managers, directors, and more. Through surveys, interviews, and workshops, we’ll ask you to think creatively about areas of need and opportunity, and about HathiTrust’s unique possibilities and value. We’re fortunate to be guided by an outstanding Visioning Task Force of selected individuals representing the breadth and depth of HathiTrust’s constituents to provide continuity and consistency throughout the project. Your participation is vital in creating a vision for our future services and programs that will benefit your library and communities, so we encourage you to participate wherever you can and welcome your informal feedback anytime (vision@hathitrust.org).
