Abstract:
In 2010, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) developed an exciting new project, designed to support libraries in future visioning and preparation. The result was a set of 4 "alternate futures" narratives (scenarios) that do not discuss libraries, but rather the research environment in which libraries will function. These scenarios work together as a set, to shape and guide strategic conversation through highlighting critical uncertainties. KU Libraries became one of the first ARL institutions to bring this work home. We launched intensive, interactive workshops that offered our staff the opportunity to suspend disbelief and move beyond conventional understanding about our future. This poster will provide an overview of the ARL scenario set, and explain the outcomes and best practices of KU Libraries’ work.
