UW Law Library Strategic Planning and Assessment Report

The University of Wisconsin Law Library regularly engages in strategic planning and assessment to ensure consistency with our mission, realization of our goals, and alignment with the research and learning needs of our students and faculty.

Image of cover of UW Law Library Assessment Report, 2021-22I’m pleased to share our 2021-22 Strategic Planning and Assessment Report which describes the following strategic initiatives and our efforts to realize them.

  • Expand our nationally recognized Law School scholarly impact and visibility program
  • Survey faculty about their research & instructional needs to inform our decision-making about library priorities & resource allocation
  • Review & refresh library spaces to enhance sense of belonging, utility, attractiveness, comfort, & safety

We are currently working toward fulfilling our 2023-25 Strategic Plan. Aligned with the UW Law School mission, we identified these four action areas on which to focus our efforts in 2023-25.

  • Educating Students
  • Climate & Culture
  • Research & Scholarly Support
  • Outreach & Public Engagement

The Law Library maintains an archive of prior strategic plans and assessment reports on our website.
