Mission Matters, a recent op-ed that I penned in the Library Journal, is an argument to reexamine our library’s mission statement. I think that the library’s mission statement is the single most important guiding document created by an organization. You can read the full piece here.
I am proud of the mission of Prairie State College Library’s mission statement:
The Mission of the Prairie State College Library is to be the library of choice for students, faculty, staff and the community. We will achieve this by creating innovative policies, services, and a physical and digital environment where members can explore and discover their world, relate and connect to their community, develop and foster their identity, grow and expand their mind, and find and inspire their creativity.
