The mission of the University of Vermont Libraries is to further the creation, application, and dissemination of knowledge by providing access to information resources and education in their use. We are a vital component of the University's commitment to excellence in instruction, innovation in research and scholarship, and dedication in public service. We are a unique resource for the state of Vermont and its people.
The University of Vermont Libraries will be northern New England's premier public research library, offering extensive information resources particularly in the liberal arts, health and life sciences, and in the study of the environment. We will be educational leaders in addressing the information needs of our dynamic learning communities, and in the formation and promulgation of sound information practices and policies. As the primary steward of materials by and about Vermont, we will employ emerging technologies to make widely available our unique cultural and political heritage collections. We will promote understanding of and responses to changing scholarly and scientific communication patterns. The Libraries' working environments for faculty, staff, students, and visitors will reflect our core values of diversity, respect, integrity, service, creativity, quality and the inherent joy of learning.
