Our mission is the success of our students. We support every student in the pursuit of their education by providing dynamic services, relevant collections, and collaborative learning spaces that foster an inclusive environment, intellectual discovery, and curiosity.
We provide an essential service by enriching the intellectual life of the campus communities.
We will define, develop, and measure outcomes that contribute to the mission of the library as well as the institution through processes, marketing, and relationships with our stakeholders.
We will engage with the campus and broader community through multiple strategies to advocate, educate, and promote our value.
We will enable users to discover information in a variety of formats through effective and responsive technology, organization of knowledge, access to collections sufficient in quality, depth, and diversity, and we will demonstrate alignment and currency with the teaching mission of SCSU.
We will continue to provide the intellectual and collaborative physical and virtual spaces that expand and facilitate knowledge acquisition, creative thinking, and current pedagogies.
We will engage in internal and external communication and decision-making to inform resource allocation, through campus partnerships that support learners who can discover, access, and use information in diverse, equitable, and inclusive practices, pedagogies, and representation.
We will support professional values of intellectual freedom, inquiry, collaboration, and student-centered services, educational programming, resistance to censorship, and valuing user privacy, and support the team through valuable training and opportunities that also support continued development and growth.
