Community Consultation

The Community Consultation period is now closed. We will be processing all feedback received to revise and finalize the vision. Thank you for your contributions.

Draft Strategic Vision for U.S. Repositories Open for Community Consultation

COAR and SPARC are seeking comment from the repository community on a draft strategic vision for U.S. repositories. The strategic vision is intended to be aspirational yet achievable over time through active community collaboration within the U.S. Repository Network. This Network is envisioned as inclusive of all U.S. repositories rather than as a membership-based organization. The process for reaching this draft vision is outlined in the U.S Repository Network Initiative Progress Report. This public comment phase is the final step before finalizing the strategic vision. Please contribute your comments by May 13, 2022.

How can feedback be submitted?

In addition to welcoming written comments, two live consultation sessions will also be offered via Zoom. Join these sessions to discuss the draft Strategic Vision live with other community members. Click the links below to register:

Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 2:00-3:00pm Eastern

Friday, May 6, 2022, 10:00-11:00am Eastern

What kind of feedback is most helpful?

The goal is to develop a Strategic Vision that clearly and accurately captures the shared values of the U.S. repository community. Some questions to consider while reading are:

  • Is the document written in a clear and concise way?
  • Does the document accurately capture the values and goals of the repository community?
  • Are there any important themes missing or under-emphasized?

Please provide your comments on the Strategic Vision page.
