Greetings!

The Libraries began a strategic planning process in April to help guide our future activities for the next few years. We have analyzed a lot of data and had many internal conversations, but are now seeking input from the campus. What do you want to see in the future of your campus libraries? Your input will help us craft the future direction of the libraries for the next 5 years and beyond.

Feedback Forms

We need your help! 

We held open Zoom sessions for stakeholder groups to seek public input on our Strategic Planning process: Deconstructing our Now, Designing our Future.  They were very informative, and we want to continue to provide the opportunity for input.   

The Student/Alumni group met November 1.
