Are we there yet? Digital Maturity modelling as part of the shift left

Like other organisations, Libraries want to shift left. But how do we know where we are on the digital journey, or where we need to go? While libraries have been embracing technology for several decades, only recently have we started fully considering these questions. The Digital Library at Edinburgh realised that although it had been shifting left for a while through increased provision of online resources and other activities such as engaging with digital scholarship, it was unsure where it was in its journey. After discussions with the newly appointed Digital Transformation Team, it was decided to undertake a Digital Maturity Modelling exercise. This paper will explore how the model was developed and applied, the process, what the results were and how the library is going to continue its shift left.
