We are pleased to share our 2015 Annual report with those who helped make it all possible. 2015 was a year for challenges, growth and success.
This past year we completed a strategic planning process which resulted in new mission and vision statements. Our vision set our focus for the future: "to be the best comprehensive university library in the country."
Rod Library is being challenged to better meet the needs of today's students, faculty and community. While Rod Library's core mission of information access persists, we are always seeking new and interesting ways of strengthening our connection to the UNI curriculum, becoming an integral partner in student learning and student success.
The library has begun transforming our spaces and services to accomplish this goal. This year was a time for growth with the addition of a library offered credit course, the continuation of expanding our Learning Commons, awards, and accomplishments that have exceeded those of the past. The success of our efforts can be seen throughout this report and visibly to those who visit.
This is an exciting time for Rod Library, UNI and libraries everywhere. We hope you enjoyed reading about our accomplishments and that you'll join us on this journey to becoming the best comprehensive university library in the country. We especially want to thank all of your because our success cannot be achieved with our partnership and continued support.
Here's to another great year!
