Strategic Plan: Direction 2
Help develop emerging areas of scholarship
We will support new research lifecycles, champion new forms of scholarship and transform the practice of scholarly communication at UC Berkeley
Berkeley is one of the world’s top research universities in no small part because its scholars push — and cross — boundaries, and initiate new areas of research. As Berkeley pioneers break new ground in areas such as data science and digital humanities, the Library must facilitate collaborations and provide scholarly resources, tools and spaces.
Our services and spaces should directly align with how people teach and learn today. This means our services should be active; our spaces should be collaborative and flexible. In doing so, we can connect scholars with information resources and each other to solve the world’s problems.
