Discover, Transform, Inspire

In 2020, the Auraria Library set out to discover new opportunities to support the diverse populations of the Auraria Campus, transform our services to better meet users wherever they are, and teach research skills to enable and inspire life-long learning.

Our desire to Discover, Transform, and Inspire led to the creation of the Auraria Library Strategic Plan 2030 road map, which aligns the Library with the strategic directions of all three institutions that comprise the Auraria Campus, and outlines how we will become an indispensable partner in the educational experiences of our students, faculty, and staff.
