Library Technology Initiatives and Development

Mission

We help promote user success by facilitating the use of inclusive and empowering technology solutions that connect each member of the CSUSM community with the information and expertise they need, in alignment with the mission and strategic plan of the Library and CSUSM.

Values

  • We are committed to advocating for a culture of inclusion, social justice, and diversity in the department, Library, and our community.
  • We strive for universal access by working together to find ways to ensure that people’s personal circumstances do not create barriers to access. 
  • We implement and support user-facing virtual search tools and interactive services that help the CSUSM community find and acquire the information they need for learning and research. 
  • We value teamwork that leverages the unique and diverse technical skills, knowledge and experiences of each unit member.
  • We synthesize best practice, standards, user data, and assessment in the selection, implementation, adoption, and delivery of technology services.
  • We strive to support innovation and technological exploration within a framework of strategic prioritization and calculated risk-taking.
  • We are committed to responsive and creative problem solving, transparency in communication, and working collaboratively with all campus partners.
