Strategic Plan: Direction 4

Strategic Plan: Direction 4

Tell our story to build community and cultivate relationships


We will develop communications and outreach globally to improve our service delivery, strengthen our contributions to the university’s mission and attract financial support to tackle our priorities

Great institutions of culture and knowledge succeed only when they receive great support from private philanthropy. Great research universities succeed only when they have a great research library. Great universities (and their libraries) need increasing financial support from private philanthropy, if they are to continue to be the engines for social mobility and scientific progress for which they are uniquely qualified.

As our services become more complex and more diverse, we must help people know what we are doing, and inspire them to engage and invest. We must communicate the Library’s value as a partner and a teacher for students, faculty and the community.
