Goal 6 Preserve natural and cultural heritage while optimizing our assets
We will deploy an Institution-wide collections plan that is based on an overall intellectual framework and the needs of the individual collecting units.
We will ensure that the Smithsonian’s undergirding physical infrastructure is capable of supporting its continuing mission, collections stewardship responsibilities, and new strategy articulated in this plan.
We will optimize the shared use of Smithsonian facilities.
We will pursue an asset-light strategy to expand our national and global footprint.
