Transition plan (resources and metadata)
With the adoption of updated collection policies and guidelines, some current and potentially new library content (using wording from the DLESE scope statement this includes educational materials, assessment and pedagogical materials, research materials, data, annotations, collections, news items (with scientific content) and tools) may not be aligned or in compliance with the updated policies. Secondly, the processes and procedures that apply and enforce collection policies need to be evaluated and updated as well. This transition plan describes how to address these issues and proposes a timeline for bringing the library in compliance with the updated policies and guidelines.
Major tasks to accomplish
The following list details the groups and individuals who have primary responsible for the tasks above. This list encompasses expertise from across the Core Services and standing committees but also requires new personnel.
The Earth System Framework Group and the Vocabulary Working Group are not expected to be permanent standing committees but rather working groups that come and go as needed over the long term. In the short term, they will be very active groups that may take one to two years to accomplish their tasks. The Managing Editor and Editorial Review Board are expected to be permanent additions to the DLESE infrastructure.
