Comprehensive Plan for Davis Implementation

We need to plan, implement and complete library projects and programs resulting in the transformation of the UML libraries.  The Coordinating Libguide will help us develop the most effective 21st century university library: a library serving student success and faculty scholarship above all else.
Toward this goal:
1.      Develop a comprehensive, updated, sequenced list of library projects and programs according to their priority, their resource needs, and enabling steps
2.      Share a project and program weekly schedule of activities
3.      Identify and interview stakeholders within the library and university in order to specify project and program objectives in detail
4.      Capture these objectives in a project management (PM) software application
5.      Interview stakeholders to specify necessary steps, resources and contingencies needed to accomplish each objective
6.      Publish the project management overview to a shared web site
7.      On a weekly basis, update the status of each library project, noting milestones and contingencies
8.      On an ongoing basis, monitor resource use and upcoming or missed deadlines for each project
9.      On a monthly basis, update the status of library programs by summarizing results achieved for specific library projects
10.  Invite stakeholders to meet on a regular basis to review project and program status
11.  Distribute an agenda ahead of meetings
12.  Record and share notes and action steps from meetings
13.  Organize training sessions to help the staff and the community develop skills needed to complete specific project steps
14.  Record sessions as appropriate, for wider distribution
15.  Monitor resource use, primarily labor time
16.  Report on resource balances, and on overall progress toward completion
17.  Facilitate web- and email-based outreach to stakeholders and the wider community
18.  Present project and program updates to university and community audiences
19.  Publicly celebrate project milestones and completions
