Library Strategy 2019 - 2021We are the Library

We are central to the UTS experience and fundamental to a lifetime of learning in an open, ever-present and equitable way.

Mission

UTS Library provides services and collections that support the University's aspiration to be a leading public university of technology. Our offerings are characterised by innovation, human centredness and the intelligent use of technology, which we use to ensure UTS achieves global impact.

Our values

As a Library we aim to make all our offerings open and accessible to all our clients. We achieve this through the value we place on:

  • Our clients who join us in ensuring our services, spaces and collections are at their best.
  • Our services and collections that are empowering, responsive, inclusive and flexible.
  • Our staff who are active listeners, empathetic, professional and fair.

Our Plan

During 2019-2021, UTS Library will focus on supporting UTS to excel in the areas of Personal Learning Experiences; Learning for a Lifetime; New Ways of Working; Our Precinct Community & Partnership; Digital Partners in Learning; and Transforming Society through Connected Research. Our results will be differentiated by the values we aspire to and the way we engage and collaborate with the whole university community.

As a library we are flexible and committed to excellence; we commit to reviewing our plan annually to ensure that we continuously improve our services, deliver against the priorities of the University and remain at the forefront of our sector.
