Digital Strategy v1.1.2 Now Available

In October 2018, the Library published a new digital strategy describing the Library’s objectives for digital transformation over the next five years. The strategy describes goals such as growing online collections, creating opportunities for deeper engagement, and investing in an innovation culture that supports a changing information landscape.

In an effort to reflect some of these very goals, the strategy was published as a versioned, living document, open to rolling public comment and revision. We are pleased to announce the first updated version of the strategy, which we are calling Digital Strategy v1.1.2, is now available online at www.loc.gov/digital-strategy and as a downloadable PDF. For transparency, we will continue to make earlier versions of the strategy available for download from the digital strategy page.

Working with Senior Leadership and the Digital Strategy Working Group, which represents stakeholders from across our institution, the Digital Strategy Directorate evaluated all comments received since the strategy’s original publication and incorporated several constructive suggestions.

Substantive edits to the document are as follows:

  • We updated numbers throughout the strategy to be consistent with our 2018 annual report
  • In the “Maximize the use of content” section, we added language reaffirming our commitment to engage with stakeholders in our effort to continually improvement public access to legislative data
  • In the “Cultivate an innovation culture” section, we updated language to increase the specificity of professional development goals.

Going forward, we plan to continue to take comments through [email protected] and revise as necessary so the strategy stays relevant. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this process!
