Institution-Wide Information Strategies
Wednesday, January 1, 1997
This article continues work begun by the late Paul Evan Peters, founding Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information. The text draws on his thoughts, ideas, and early writings defining a CNI initiative on institution-wide information strategies, and on the input of an informal group of advisors that Paul had assembled from the library, technology, archive, and information resources professions. Five over-arching issues involving information resources services and institutional strategies will be addressed in all case study reports of this initiative: Information technology platforms; financial resources for information services; the information professions -- organization and human resources; information policies and practices; and strategic alignment.
