Mission, Vision, & Plans


The Champlain College Library is more than a space. We are people, resources, and community, centering students in all of our work. We advance and enhance the teaching, research, and service of the College through our dynamic and curriculum-driven collection, our innovative library instructional programs, our facility, our involvement and integration across the College, and our passion to make our library and campus more inclusive, equitable, and just.


The Champlain College Library will adapt to the needs of current and future students, working with campus partners to shape student experience and learning. By empowering students to navigate knowledge effectively, creatively, and critically, we will inspire informed, curious, and engaged life-long learning.

The Champlain College Library Strategic Plan for 2022-2026 guides our work and is articulated to the college’s R/Evolutionary 2030 Strategic Goals.
