Mission and Vision

The mission of the University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries is to enrich and advance learning and discovery in the University, community, state, and nation by providing access to a broad array of resources for education, research, scholarship, and creative work to ensure the rich interchange of ideas in the pursuit of truth and learning.  We join the University to serve Colorado and engage in the world.


The University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries preserves the past, enriches the present, and shapes the future. The Libraries faculty and staff collaborate internally, with colleagues beyond the campus, and with our clients to advance information literacy, intellectual freedom, lifelong learning, the disciplinary growth of information, and the amplification of knowledge—personal and global. We join the University in redefining learning and discovery in a global context. We demonstrate our commitment to the strength of diversity in personnel, resources, services, and relationships with an internal climate of mutual respect and collegiality, tireless efforts to acquire and provide access to a broad array of resources, innovation in technology and service, and the development of partnerships with our clientele.
