Mission Statements

Leadership
As members of the Owens Library Leadership Team, we are responsible for providing an environment that encourages and enables all Owens' teams to realize their missions in serving patrons. In addition to supporting the University mission, we coordinate all services and functions of the library and monitor the processes related to the Owens Library mission, vision, and KQIs. As an empowered team, we are accountable to every member of the library staff, bearing special responsibilities in regards to the "talent development" of the Owens' work force. We actively encourage library personnel to be student-centered, innovative, professional and responsible for their own success and the success of their teams. (Leadership Team, April 3, 1997)
