Strategic Plan, 2019-2021


The UFV Library is pivotal in supporting the teaching, learning, and scholarship needs of the University’s diverse community of learners and scholars, through:

  • delivery of programs and services that are academically, culturally, and socially relevant;
  • curation of excellent collections and resources;
  • provision of welcoming learning spaces; and
  • instruction in the lifelong skills of locating, accessing, and evaluating information.

UFV library creates connections and diverse opportunities for learning, teaching, and scholarship. We are active partners in our students’ success.
