Beginning in August 2019, under the leadership of the Hon. Justice Greg Garde and Ms Laurie Atkinson, the Law Library of Victoria undertook a consultative process of engagement with the legal community to develop our five-year strategic plan.
Importantly, the strategy was also developed in the context of the COVID-19 crisis – where new and emerging ways of working have helped to shape the library’s digital transformation and service strategy.
This consultative process has helped to deliver a comprehensive, fit-for-purpose strategy to guide the Law Library of Victoria over the coming five years – enabling us to provide an authoritative, digitally engaged resource to enhance the capabilities of Victoria’s legal sector.
The Library Committee envisions a library that provides judicial officers, the profession and community with ready access to legal information, contributing to the administration of justice and the practice of law in Victoria. As learning and knowledge become more collaborative and dynamic, the Library is focused on expanding its authoritative collection; enhancing legal research capabilities of its users; strengthening collaboration and partnerships with organisations; and promoting a better governance and dynamic workforce.
