MissionThe University Libraries are the intellectual hub of AUB. They develop, manage, and provide access to distinctive collections, services, and facilities in order to advance the research, teaching, and learning of the scholarly and clinical communities at the University and beyond.
VisionThe University Libraries seeks to be the information and research destination of choice committed to supporting lifelong learning and scholarship; providing a welcoming, resource‐rich, innovative, and stimulating environment; embracing collaborative opportunities; and to cultivating a technologically‐enhanced, user‐centered setting for the discovery, creation, organization, preservation, and communication of knowledge.
Way ForwardWe strive to provide comprehensive and high quality library resources and services to help the University fulfill its mission of providing excellence in education, participating in the advancement of knowledge through research, and serving the peoples of the Middle East and beyond. To become a strategic asset for the University and to be able to provide outstanding collections, inspiring learning experiences, and essential expertise, we will need to address or focus on four priorities: research and collections, teaching and learning, outreach, and organizational culture and effectiveness. Note that space problem is emphasized in several areas within these priorities.
