SMART Strategic Plan
Statement of Purpose
SECTION ON MANAGEMENT OF INFORMATION RESOURCES AND TECHNOLOGY
SMART serves personnel in all types of libraries and information centers. SMART recognizes that information exists in a variety of forms and places, and that information transfer often takes place without reference to the printed page. SMART focuses on acquisitions, cataloging, serials control, circulation, conservation, collection management and on-line services.
The Section on Management of Information Resources and Technology shall foster research; promote the development of appropriate standards; disseminate information to the membership via publications, demonstration, and presentation; monitor technical developments significant to library applications; and facilitate and encourage special interest programming, including liaison with appropriate private sector groups.
