Expanding and enhancing the libraries’ spaces, resources and services is essential in serving NDSU’s vibrant learning community. The libraries provide stimulating and inviting environments that nurture curiosity, help students achieve academic success, and create lifelong learners. Last year, the Libraries had over 150,000 visitors and 247,088 catalog searches. We taught 5,226 students and answered 7,984 research questions.
Focused efforts will move the libraries beyond just providing access, but making connections visible, assessing relevancy, tracking trends, and carefully balancing resources to keep in line with NDSU as a student focused, land grant, research university. The Libraries are an authentic interdisciplinary hub that consist of six branches and house multiple other campus services. We will continue to enhance the tools to help research and connectivity, provide adaptable and dynamic spaces to bring people and research together, and strengthen the role of library professionals as information experts.
