UCI Libraries Strategic Plan 2005-2014/2015

UCI Libraries Strategic Plan 


  • Partner with the UCI community to advance transformative research, teaching and learning excellence, and high-quality patient care by embedding experts and resources where knowledge is created and connections happen.
  • Preserve the cultural/historical/scientific record and ensure that services and collections express excellence in scholarship.
  • Leverage expertise and resources to provide an inclusive environment that promotes intellectual pursuit and creativity while instilling strong information research skills and a thirst for knowledge that will last a lifetime.
  • Teach critical thinking and evaluation skills to prepare students for lifelong learning, success in their future careers, and to be informed citizens in our world.


The Libraries value:

  • UCI's faculty, staff, students, and community by providing high-quality services and collections that are readily and equitably accessible.
  • UCI's diversity and principles of community, which we uphold, incorporate, and exemplify in our actions.
  • The excellence of our employees as they advance campus goals, enhance knowledge and skills, and embrace innovation and change.
  • Engagement with stakeholders and ongoing assessment of services and operations to ensure that we are meeting UCI's needs and effectively using resources.
