Mission, strategic plan

VU University Library is the content manager for VU University and VU Medical Center.
It supports the entire information chain from knowledge, information and data as raw material for education and research through the distribution and management of the scientific output of the university.

The Library maintains collections, provides access to content and provides related products and services. A large part of the collection is digitally accessible, also from the home workplace.

The services are tailored to the needs of the various faculties and continuously aims to improve processes, often through innovative digital technologies and multimedia (MediaXperience).

The Library also offers a high-quality physical study and learning environment at two locations: the Library in the VU main building and the Medical Library in the VUmc.  

Hotspot voor content

The strategic plan 2014-2016 Hotspot voor content, de Universiteitsbibliotheek, contentmanager van de Vrije Universiteit will form the basis for the reorganization of the VU Library in the coming months.

Unlike in previous plans, the Department of Education Counseling and the Audiovisual Centre (AVC) will no longer form part of the Library. For their tasks, the VU Executive Board has appointed quartermasters who will develop plans for the ways in which their functioning can have maximum value to the University. The plan Hotspot for content concerns only the library functions of the current UBVU domain.
