Icon Large Inspire Knowledge Creation Member libraries hope to inspire creativity and the creation of new knowledge by students, faculty, and researchers at their institutions.  In addition, the Alliance seeks to develop shared services that support students and faculty in their roles as creators, and that establish libraries as partners in the creation and dissemination of new work.

Goals

  1. Partner in the creation of high quality research, scholarship, and curricula.
  2. Develop infrastructure and expertise to support the dissemination of newly created or adapted information resources.
  3. Curate physical and digital collections that foster diversity and inclusiveness in research, scholarship, and teaching.
