It would be easy for OSU Libraries and Press to rest upon
our laurels, but we have been busier than ever this past
year. One huge accomplishment was the completion of
a new strategic plan for 2012‐2017. This plan establishes
four goals for us:
reimagine the learning and service environment
enrich academic impact and educational prosperity
play a fundamental role in knowledge creation and
sustain an intentional and inclusive organization.
These goals will direct our efforts to face the challenges of research libraries and
university presses like OSU Libraries and Press. They will guide us as we make
crucial contributions to Oregon State University’s drive to be a top ten land grant
institution. They will position us as a successful example for other research libraries
and presses to emulate.
This impact report highlights the ways that our friends and supporters have
contributed to our accomplishments in 2012‐13 through their generous investment
in our services, collections, spaces, and personnel. Their commitment supports our
efforts to enrich the learning experiences of OSU students, advance access to
scholarly resources, contribute to the University’s teaching and research mission,
pursue innovative programs and services, and continually develop our talented
We are thankful for the tremendous support of a growing community of supporters.
Such ongoing support will enable us to keep making a difference for the OSU
community and beyond.
