III. Mission and Vision


The OSU Libraries and Press cultivate excellence in scholarship and creativity, empower discovery, and preserve and disseminate knowledge. Our work is rooted in our commitment to openness, inclusion, equity and diversity. We advance OSU’s mission by contributing to learning success, scholarly excellence and community engagement, and by respectful and proactive stewardship.


The OSU Libraries and Press will be at the center of learning and scholarship at Oregon State University. As a resource for our communities, we will provide tools and expertise to support academic success. In support of this, we will reach across boundaries, bridge gaps, and break down silos to encourage curiosity-based engagement and create learning opportunities.
