What We Considered

Our strategic plan is also a strategic direction that inspires our objectives. We considered broad-themed priorities to help the libraries meet the current requirements of our community by using our expertise and experience. These goals sit within our overarching themes that are incorporated in all of our work: diversity, equity, inclusion, & accessibility; leadership; and infrastructure (technology and facilities).

Based on what we learned from feedback, we strive to build a stable, supportive, and inspiring workplace for our people in the libraries.
