The Libraries' strategic plan provides a context for our work. Our mission states, "As a dynamic organization that thrives in relation with our community, the Libraries respond to diverse and changing user needs. We exemplify the characteristics of Marianist education and leadership, which inform our models for innovative and sustainable collections, discovery, and service so that we can empower learning, scholarship, and creative expression."
