Preparing for the Future Scenario Planning Process: Findings from Internal Data Gathering

In April and May of 2010, Stratus and ARL conducted interviews, focus groups and a survey of ARL members and external thinkers on the future of research libraries and the strategic challenges they face. This report is a summary of the findings from that process, including a draft strategic focus that captures the scope of thinking of the ARL membership that participated in this effort.

The ARL 2030 Scenarios: A User's Guide for Research Libraries

This package, which contains the “ARL 2030 Scenario Set” and an accompanying user’s guide, is the product of a project to promote visioning and scanning activities among research libraries. ARL’s “Envisioning Research Library Futures: A Scenario Thinking Project” employed a scenario planning process to develop four scenarios for 2030, which answered the question, “How do we transform our organization(s) to create differential value for future users (individuals, institutions, and beyond), given the external dynamics redefining the research environment over the next 20 years?”
