Strategic Priorities 2018+

February 14, 2018

Aligned with the Principal’s 5 Priorities and consistent with our mission to support and advance teaching, learning, research and community service, the Library’s strategic priorities place particular emphasis on our commitment to being a user focused organization and our ongoing dedication to constantly improving internal and external communication.

A list of strategic priorities and action items were developed in late 2017, early 2018, when Library staff took part in a nominal group technique process to gain a better understanding of the issues facing the organization and the ways the services it offers can be improved. Through a series of brainstorming sessions and retreats, six priorities were identified as key areas of focus in the years to come.

1.    Transform our spaces in response to changing needs of our community: Launch Fiat Lux building project

2.    Deliver innovative library support for faculty and students

3.    Enhance online access to our collections: Implement a new library services platform

4.    Empower staff providing service excellence: Focus on staff training

5.    Foster a healthy environment for staff

6.    Preserve and share unique treasures with the world

Each strategic area has a description of the main issues, the executive owner responsible for leading the effort, and a progress “light”. The six main initiatives are somewhat flexible and will evolve over time as we chart a course towards achieving our vision.
