Project Summary

The Galecia Group has been working with PaILS since May 2016. PaILS is a consortium in Pennsylvania which provides a shared Evergreen system for 37 library systems across the state.  The engagement includes:

  • assessing existing services and operations
  • re-evaluating the PaILS Mission Statement
  • reformulating the PaILS Vision Statement
  • identifying strategic priorities
  • developing a plan to address challenges related to the need for stable funding the disparate needs of a diverse group of libraries

This engagement is led by Lori Bowen Ayre with Galecia Associates Lucien Kress and Sam McBane Mulford.  The assessment is now complete and a final report has been submitted for the consortium's consideration.  We are still working with PaILS to finalize their strategic planning document.
