Digital Lifecycle Program Steering Committee

Content section: 

By guiding and endorsing information policy and process development for the Digital Lifecycle Program (DLP), the DLP Steering Committee ensures that the Library improves and expands scholars’ access to and use of resources by creating and preserving digital collections through widespread digitization and new access services.

The DLP Steering Committee is responsible for:
-    ensuring DLP goals and outcomes are aligned with and informed by Library strategic directions, division/unit goals, and a coherent vision for the University Library as a unified entity.
-    articulating high-level principles and guidance to ensure that all DLP-related staff, systems, working groups, agreements, and outputs help both advance core needs and address strategic opportunities.
-    affirming DLP success measures, and contributing to ongoing assessment of progress and program directions.
-    identifying needs for and approving policies, guidelines, and other documentation valuable for DLP’s success.
-    overseeing and informing program-level decisions such as project prioritization, risk assessment and tolerance, resource allocation, vendor agreements, and coordinated grant reviews prior to submission.
-    in coordination with the DLP Expertise Group and DLP Program Manager, deploying working groups to draft and/or provide consultation for DLP-related policies and process development.
