Library Launches New Strategic Plan

Post Date:
Apr 3, 2023

Following upon a responsive and creative consultation and planning exercise, Queen’s University Library (QUL) is delighted to be officially launching its new Strategic Plan.

Covering three years, this comprehensive plan establishes a set of strategic priorities designed to build on the library’s existing strengths and expand and enhance the library’s responsiveness to the changing needs and expectations of the communities we serve. At the same time, the plan compliments and advances each of the six strategic directions of Queen’s University’s shared vision For the Future: research impact, student learning, research and teaching integration, global engagement, Queen’s in the community, and organizational culture. The library’s plan also maps out pathways for successful achievement of our strategic priorities through activities and initiatives aimed at intensifying the positive difference the library can make both within Queen’s, and across the rapidly evolving landscape of higher education.

“Among the most important strengths of our planning process has been ensuring that we are informed by research in trends and opportunities for 21st century research libraries while seeking out and listening to perspectives from all parts of our library system. This strategic planning project brought forward valuable insights which have informed the creation of our priorities and the pathways envisioned for their completion. The depth and responsiveness of this plan is a testament to the expertise of our library team members, not to say their common goal of having an enduring and positive impact across the communities we serve.” Said Vice Provost and University Librarian Mark Asberg.

The library looks forward to sharing regular updates as we implement and progress the elements of our new strategic plan. Inquiries and feedback can be directed to
