Welcome to the blueprint for the next four years of transformation and innovation at American University’s Library – our 2023-2026 Strategic Plan. This plan is a commitment to empowering our students, elevating our faculty, and engaging with our community.

In an era marked by rapid technological advancements and an ever-shifting landscape of information, our library must be resilient, adaptable, and forward-thinking. Throughout the next four years, we look forward to deepening our commitment to research support, student engagement, and community partnerships by putting our values into action. We envision a future where the library is a hub for campus-wide creativity and collaboration where we create knowledge together.
