Strategic Plan

Fundamental changes are underway in scholarly communication, information technology, and higher education.  OSU Libraries has developed an ambitious agenda to meet these new challenges and to fulfill its mission of delivering high quality content and responsive services in support of research, teaching and learning at Ohio State, within Ohio, and to a wider scholarly community.

The Ohio State University Libraries' Strategic Plan for 2011-2016 evolved from review and discussion of five strategic themes that articulate an expanding role for the library within the larger academic community.  Stated very simply, those themes center around services, collections, library as intellectual crossroads, infrastructure, and innovative leadership.

We invite you to review our strategic plan for the future of library services.
