PUL announces mission and vision statements

We are pleased to announce the release of Princeton University Library's mission and vision statements.

"The statements are a landmark moment for the Library," said Anne Jarvis, Robert H. Taylor 1930 University Librarian. "This is the first time the Library has created and released mission and vision statements. It was a collaborative endeavor in which the staff was invited to contribute input and thoughts on statements drafted by the Library's leadership team. These statements mark the beginning of an important opportunity for unity and clarity of purpose, and the Library is proud to share our position for supporting the University's mission of excellence in academics."


Integral to Princeton University’s mission, we enrich teaching, learning, and research by providing world-class library services and collections that are responsive to a rapidly changing scholarly environment. In collaboration with a global community of institutions with similar missions, we ensure continuing access to the world’s diverse intellectual and cultural heritage in all its forms.


Within Princeton University and across the global academic community, we aspire to be an active and creative partner by stimulating intellectual analysis, providing stewardship, and responding to evolving forms of pedagogy and research.

Princeton University Library includes the Architecture Library, Center for Digital Humanities, East Asian Library, Engineering Library, Firestone Library, Furth Plasma Physics Library, Lewis Science Library, Marquand Art Library, Mendel Music Library, Mudd Manuscript Library, Special Collections, Stokes Library, and the Video Library.
