Professional Goals and Philosophy

Embracing leadership opportunities within academic library organizations that value “blended” technological and people-centered service environments. Today’s academic library must seek to nurture its traditional roles while identifying and leveraging its value as an institutional catalyst for academic discourse, inquiry, learning support. An understanding the shifting and evolving roles for libraries within an academic environment requires regular and systematic value assessment. Beyond its materials and services, the ultimate value of an academic library is a physical and virtual environment where a unique institutional culture can be observed, nurtured and discussed.
