Mission, vision, and aspirational qualities

Mission

We enable people to cultivate ideas, develop capacities, and create knowledge. Users do this through the University Libraries’ provision of collections, expertise, services, and environments.

Vision

We aspire to transform the way people experience knowledge. We do this by providing new ways to discover, access, create, sustain, and share information. The Libraries aim to advance learning and research by enabling new types of questions to be asked, new forms of scholarship to be produced, and previously unimaginable problems or solutions to be explored.

Curation

Creation
We enable people to design, make, and express their ideas.
Community
We bring people, ideas, and resources together.
Catalyst
We ignite people’s curiosity and sense of possibility.
Knowledge
We stimulate creative, cultural, social, and intellectual endeavors.
