In May 1993, the British Library published For Scholarship, Research and Innovation, its statement of strategic objectives for the year 2000. Describes the background to this, its third strategic planning document, and summarizes its key thrusts. The corporate nature, interdependency and pervasiveness of some of the action lines arising from the strategic objectives required that alternative means of pursuing implementation, other than through normal management lines, be found. The chosen approach for achieving single point responsibility and accountability is through the appointment of senior corporate “champions” to develop the Library′s role in four key performance areas: corporate collection management, corporate collection development, user satisfaction, and access improvement. Also describes a computer resource allocation model showing linkages between the four areas.
