Western Libraries Western Libraries Western Libraries
During the 2014-15 academic year Western Libraries Dean’s Leadership Group worked with library staff and institutional stakeholders to update the Libraries’ strategic plan and goals document established in 2012. Recognizing that the existing goals remained relevant this revision, which reflects environmental changes and accomplishments over the previous three years, further clarifies how the goals support ongoing Libraries and university initiatives.
The resulting 2015-2018 plan continues the close alignment of strategic goals with those of Western Washington University and Western Libraries.


Mission: Western Libraries connects – people to people, people to place, people to learning. 
Vision: Western Libraries will be the intellectual crossroads of our community, an innovative partner in learning and research.
