University Libraries 2020-2022 Strategic Plan

The goal of University Libraries Strategic Plan is to push the University Libraries forward toward a more fully realized achievement of its mission, to enact our commitment to ethical and equitable practices and policies, and to ambitiously grow as a 21st century academic library. This plan is not inclusive of everything that we do; there are many valuable activities and services that are not mentioned, and that is not meant to minimize the importance of those activities. Instead, this plan puts focus on the areas we feel should be the highest priority for increased attention and investment in the near term, areas where we want to see specific development.
