"The foundation of the UA Libraries is our forward-looking perspective: We are driven to innovate as we expand our impact on student learning, faculty research, and community engagement. We transcend the role of service providers by being catalysts in areas such as cultivating critical thinking skills in students, and facilitating open access to scholarship produced at the UA. As the curriculum shifts toward active learning, we are re-envisioning our buildings as laboratories for creativity in the analog and digital realms. As research workflows leverage new technologies, we are at the forefront of supporting that engagement. Join us to help shape an exciting future for academic libraries.”
