The application of information and communication technologies (ICT) in the functioning of libraries has become inevitable in the context of supporting higher educational institutions (HEIs). In connection with digitalization, scientific investigations examine the issues of changing strategies for developing and digitizing the content of libraries of higher educational institutions within the conditions of a new information environment. The purpose of the academic paper lies in identifying the features of creating strategic content of the library of the higher educational institution in the information and cultural space. The methodology of the research is based on a content analysis of developing strategies and content of libraries of higher educational institutions (HEIs) in different countries of the Eurasian region. The results show that in the context of information technology, a service-oriented approach is required when defining strategic development goals in the field of user-oriented technologies in order to identify their needs and provide them with the necessary services. It has been revealed that libraries choose the most necessary software, developing forms of instant responses, using various tools of interactive communication. Digital content and interactive technologies bring them closer to readers, make them more relevant in the modern information society, form a new image, and increase the users’ social activity by attracting them to the creation of library content (indirect participation in the formation of a resource through collaborative filtering). The world largest libraries pay particular attention to strategic planning in practical terms.
