Creating a 21st Century Library


Create a 21st century library that serves as a cornerstone of world-class research and scholarship.

In a world where digital is becoming the default format for information, the library will remain a vital presence on campus, sustaining serious scholarship and providing opportunities for interactive research and study environments. To support this important work for students, faculty and staff, and to create 21st century library spaces for 21st century learners, the library will:

  • Develop information specialists as partners in research, teaching and learning.
  • Collaborate with peer institutions to provide coordinated access to a global collection of information resources.
  • Steward the evolving scholarly record and champion new forms of scholarly communication.
  • Be recognized globally as a leader in the development of the scholarly information ecosystem.
