SP 1.1: Develop Plan for Attaining Membership in the Association of Research Libraries

This project aims to develop a plan to attain membership in the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). We have collected data on our libraries and ARL libraries that allow us evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of our potential candidacy and are in the process of purchasing a database that will allow us to refine our analysis. We are also planning an informal visit by the executive director of ARL to assess our position relative to ARL membership criteria.

Goals advanced under this project are:

  1. Become a Nationally Recognized University for Outstanding Doctoral Education
  2. Increase Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities Profile to that of a Premier Public University

Indicators of success for these goals are:
