The Library’s Mission Statement, taken from the Strategic Plan, follows:

The University Library exists to serve the curricular and research needs of the students and faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign by making available published materials, unpublished documents, and electronic resources that together comprise a current and retrospective record of human knowledge. As an integral part of the worldwide scientific and scholarly community, the Library engages in alliances with other institutions nationally and internationally to further the development of its collections and the provision of information resources. As a major component of the statewide library and information services network, the Library provides service to users across the State of Illinois. Building upon a rich heritage, the Library seeks to maintain a strategic position as an institution of worldwide renown that offers unparalleled opportunities for intellectual exploration.
