Empowering and inspiring

The University Libraries plays a key role in the research, learning, and outreach mission of the University of Nevada, Reno. With the University’s Wolf Pack Rising 2023-2027 Strategic Plan as its foundation, the Libraries has set forth the following goals and strategies to empower and inspire our diverse community of users.

The Libraries has expertise in a variety of areas and disciplines and through our role as campus collaborator and connector, we will amplify the impact of this work in helping our communities thrive both locally and globally. We will build on the Libraries' new membership in the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA) to increase our national reputation.

The plan structure

The University Libraries’ strategic plan consists of four components:

  • Our vision, mission, and values are the foundation upon which our strategic plan is built. Collectively, they communicate who we are, what we strive to become, and the principles at the core of our work.
  • Our goals establish the key areas the Libraries will contribute both to the University’s strategic plan and to the continued pursuit our vision, mission, and values.
  • Our strategies are the initiatives that support our goals and inform the actions necessary to achieve them.
  • Our actions detail the specific endeavors the Libraries will pursue to accomplish our strategies and goals. We will establish actions every year and report on our accomplishments.
