BC ELN is beginning 2023 with a fresh new strategic framework to guide the consortium’s work.
Developed over the past year in consultation with partner library staff and directors, BC ELN staff, and Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills representatives, the BC ELN Strategic Framework 2023-27 sets out three directions that will guide the consortium’s work over the next five years:

  • Develop Responsive, Inclusive, and Sustainable Services
  • Empower and Engage our Community
  • Pursue Meaningful, Reciprocal Partnerships

­The framework is intended to flex and adapt as circumstances in the environment change. While the three overarching directions guide BC ELN’s forward momentum and inform how the community will concentrate its energies in the next five years, shorter-term, adjustable goals will be set under each direction. Ongoing reporting and regular checkpoints will allow BC ELN to assess how progress is meeting partners’ needs, and the consortium will have the option to adjust goals as needed.
As with all BC ELN initiatives, this new framework is the culmination of a collaborative process. We thank partner libraries and Ministry representatives for the time and energy devoted to this work, and we look forward to transforming the framework’s ideas into action – together.
