Abstract
The Iowa State University Library exists to support Iowa State University’s mission to “create, share, and apply knowledge to make Iowa and the world a better place.” As both a research university and land-grant institution, ISU holds a unique role in the state. The Library provides a wide range of information resources that support the teaching, learning, and research taking place at the university while also addressing the general information needs of Iowa residents and the public at large. This statement outlines the values and strategies that guide the Library as we build an open and relevant information ecosystem that shares our values and provides our communities with the information and services they need. We apply these values and strategies to create our General Collections found online and physically located in Parks Library, the Design Reading Room, the Veterinary Medicine Library, and the Library Storage Building.
