Researchers, lecturers and students have a reliable partner in the library in the area of scholarly information. Librarians use their expertise to contribute to the constant improvement of the scholarly communication cycle. The library inspires bright minds to meet and exchange knowledge and ideas. Libraryservices are organised in an interdisciplinary way in close cooperation with other parties both internal and external to Utrecht University
Strategic Plan 2014-2017
Excellent library services are characterised by continuity as well as innovation. For 430 years, we have ensured access to scholarly knowledge to the academic community despite the fact that format, access methods and knowledge (re)use are now consistently subject to fundamental change. The library can only stay connected to its users if it continues to adapt and innovate. In addition, it is a given that library services will be organised in cooperation with other parties, within or outside the university community. This is in line with the international ambitions of Utrecht University and the increasingly international character of research and academic education in general
The circle of scientific communication is central to this. The library offers professional support in every phase of research.
