Our Values

Equity and Inclusion

We serve as a nexus for community engagement, collaboration, and knowledge creation.  We design services that dismantle barriers to equity and foster an inclusive environment where patrons and staff are comfortable authentically expressing themselves.  

Responsibility and Respect

We steward the scholarly record, preserve the intellectual and cultural contributions of our community, and ensure access to vital resources.  We cultivate mutual empathy and respect through our collections and services which support and enrich our community.

Ever Better

We innovate to advance excellence in teaching, learning, and research across the university.  We commit our iconic spaces, high-quality services, and deep expertise to creative collaboration, open practices, and intellectual pursuits.
