Weber State University Stewart Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Stewart Library is to:

  • Advance the instructional, scholarship, and community service mission of Weber State University through the development of on-site collections, access to off-site resources, personalized assistance in the use of library and information resources, and instruction on research strategies and tools.
  • Assess the services we provide and the relevancy and use of the collections and use assessment outcomes to continually improve our resources and services.

In support of the University's mission to "provide students with high-quality comprehensive programs in professional and liberal arts areas as well as studies in advanced professional fields," the library has adopted the following strategic goals:

  • Continue to improve the quality and relevancy of the collection by systematically assessing the information resources needs of the academic community and developing a focused, core collection of print and electronic resources to support instructional and research needs.
  • Enhance access to information resources by subscribing to electronic databases and full-text journals and, in consultation with faculty, canceling print subscriptions for titles available full-text online.
  • Provide a comprehensive instruction program that includes for credit, online and on demand instruction in order to graduate students with information literacy competencies.
  • Augment the library's budget by approximately 10% per year with private donations and grants.

The library reflects the University's community service mission by actively seeking to establish appropriate partnerships with libraries and other organizations within the community and by providing community access to its resources and services.
