Welcome to the Library of Congress Cataloging Directorate’s Strategic Planning Web Page. The directorate issued its first strategic plan in spring 2003. The strategic plan covers fiscal years 2003 through 2008 and includes strategic initiatives for fiscal years 2003 and 2004. The directorate will develop new strategic initiatives every two years.
This page leads you to the documents that the directorate issues as a result of its strategic planning process, beginning with the Strategic Plan itself. Also available from this page will be documents from the Cataloging Directorate Goal IV Management Group, which is leading the charge to "Provide leadership in the application of bibliographic control/access to digital content."
New documents will be added throughout 2004. Currently available (in PDF format):
