RLUK will be refreshing its Digital Shift Manifesto, outlining the actions our community will undertake to be ready for the next decade of the Digital Shift. Research libraries are strongly positioned to lead and influence the effective exploitation of digital technologies within their institutions, and we are keen to unlock the potential which the Digital Shift offers.
We will build programmes, joint resources, and skills-sharing opportunities that enhance the collective digital skills base of its members, directed by a digital workforce development strategy which has diversity at its core.
The Digital Workforce Development Strategy provides a model for RLUK members to both reflect and to look ahead to managing their digital workforce development and proposes a Digital Skills Framework reflecting current initiatives over the short, medium and long term for Library Directors, Associate Directors and Senior Managers.
The Digital Shift Forum will continue to bring together colleagues from across the information, research, cultural and heritage communities, and third and commercial sectors, to discuss the future of the digital shift in collections, services, and audiences.
