Strategic Plan 2015-2018
This document summarizes key strategic priorities for the UNT Libraries in the 2015 - 2018 period, and will inform planning activities during this time. This document lays out the primary directions that the UNT Libraries will undertake during four years. It builds on previous work and accomplishments, and serves as a transition guide for moving beyond the 2011-2015 strategic plan.
The four years of 2015–2018 will be a period of dynamic change for the University of North Texas, and a period in which the UNT Libraries must undertake transformative efforts in providing information services and resources to the campus. The national proliferation of new information resources, tools, and programs means that there is an enormous range of possibilities which could benefit the UNT community; however, we are in a period in which funding for new library resources may be constrained by flat enrollments and other demands. The challenge for UNT to engage with is the prioritization of opportunities and needs in this period. The following represent the most important priorities for the UNT Libraries:
- Strategic Goal A. Improving Library Resources
- Strategic Goal B. Transform Access to Research Information
- Strategic Goal C. Student Information Fluency
- Strategic Goal D. Ongoing Facilities Improvements
- Strategic Goal E. Library Staff Development
