PCC Mission Statement Report
The Policy Committee is pleased for this opportunity to share with the PCC membership the draft Report of the Task Group on the PCC Mission Statement now available at: http://www.loc.gov/catdir/pcc/tgrptPCCMission.html . This document is among the initial efforts undertaken to prepare for the revision of the Program's Strategic Plan, beginning with the next PoCo meeting in Nov.
The Mission statement is an essential aspect of PCC vision, and the document sets out important assumptions about the changing environment and projects adjustments resulting therefrom in the PCC's core activities and roles. These are also specified in the draft Report.
The current draft takes into account input shared at the recent Operations Meetings and also comments offered at a special meeting of the Policy Committee held in conjunction with the recent ALA where it was given preliminary approval. It was also presented at the Participants Meeting and received a warm welcome. As a final stage in this process, we are offering the report and its recommendation to individuals at our member institutions. Please note that comments are due by July 31 and should be sent to Carlen Ruschoff at [log in to unmask]
