University of Delaware Library Vision Statement

The Library, through its collections, services and staff, is an essential and vital component in the intellectual life of the University. It has been recognized by membership in the Association of Research Libraries. The Library has assembled a knowledgeable and highly skilled staff who provide intellectual and physical access to its substantial collections and who serve, with the faculty, as an active partner in the academic mission of the University.

Rapid technological advances in the area of information storage, retrieval, and delivery are making it possible to expand access to a world of information beyond the Library's walls. By providing optimum access to information regardless of its location, the Library supports the teaching and research missions of the University of Delaware in new and enhanced ways.

The following vision will carry the University of Delaware Library into the next century as a valuable asset to the University, the State of Delaware, and the scholarly community.
