Strategic Directions

In pursuit of its mission, CAUL develops a national perspective on issues relevant to university libraries, provides a forum for discussion and collaboration and works to promote common interests.

The CAUL constitution (item 1.1.6) says that 'to establish and pursue a strategic plan...' is an important objective of CAUL.

Following a review of CAUL's committee structures & processes in 2010, the strategic plan was revised to take into account this new capacity and direction, and updated in late 2012 to take CAUL forward in 2013-2015.  A complete review was undertaken in March 2014, resulting in a completely new approach to CAUL's strategic directions.

In 2016 CAUL conducted a reivew of its 2014-2016 strategy and in March 2017 two new strategic priorities were endorsed:
