Transcending Borders: The San Diego State University Library Strategic Plan, 2022 – 2025

Goal 3: We Are SDSU

In order to promote the shared missions of learning, scholarship, and engagement by San Diego State University across multiple campuses and academic program sites (physical and digital), the University Library will:

3.1 Conduct a benchmarking study of awareness of, and access to, library resources and services across stakeholders at different academic program sites to determine areas of emphasis for promotion of equitable access;

3.2 Establish a consistent “University Library” brand and staffing model for library services delivered across multiple SDSU sites to promote awareness and equitable access to library resources and services for all students;

3.3 Collaborate with campus and CSU colleagues to promote continued development and adoption of open educational resources for use in SDSU coursework;

3.4 Provide support to campus colleagues in the design and delivery of foundational library resources and services to emergent programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including identifying areas for necessary investment in those resources and services;

3.5 Collaborate with the Aztec Identity Initiative, Office of International Affairs, and related units to establish a plan for library contribution to international initiatives, including global education and international research partnerships;

3.6 Collaborate with campus and community partners to establish a plan for SDSU Mission Valley library services (and other sites, as appropriate) that complements the distinctive blend of educational programs, research initiatives, and public engagement available at each site;

3.7 Establish a special collections and university archives collection at the SDSU Imperial Valley Library;

3.8 Develop a “one-stop” portal promoting access to library resources and services to SDSU Global Campus students and faculty;

3.9 Extend digital humanities programming across SDSU academic program sites, including Imperial Valley and Mission Valley; and,

3.10 Collaborate with the University History Curator to support campus and community programming around the 125th Anniversary of San Diego State University.
