Finalized in Spring 2017 and updated in the Fall of 2023, this strategic plan guides the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press in planning, decision-making and resource allocation. The four Strategic Directions were shaped by a dynamic process that included environmental scans of selected comparator institution libraries, focus groups with stakeholders and broad input from staff.

The strategic plan is an aspirational and living document that articulates an agenda aligned with the strategic directions of the University and the needs of the community we serve. As such, this plan will be updated every few years to ensure our work and efforts remain relevant and forward thinking.
