ECU Library Vision, Mission + Values
Today1pm - 5pm
Tomorrow1pm - 5pm
The Library + Archives aspires to be a radical and empowering space that serves as the heart of ECU. We envision the Library + Archives as the place where students, faculty, staff, and the wider community deepen their creative knowledge and research practices, and make connections. The Library + Archives will be a humanising and fully accessible place where the responsive and relatable team prioritise trust-building and advocacy as they strive to meet community needs.
Our friendly and approachable Library + Archives team facilitates independent and collaborative creativity, knowledge-building and judgement-free inquiry by providing rich collections, thoughtful services, and welcoming spaces.
Accessibility: we work to create an environment which ensures that the diverse physical, psychosocial and emotional needs of our community are met.
Anti-racism: we work to identify and eliminate the systemic racism inherent in our policies and practices.
Care: we demonstrate respect and empathy for each other and the community.
Community: we promote relationship building, reciprocity, and collaboration.
Decolonization and Reconciliation: we strive to dismantle harmful colonial systems and structures while developing respectful reciprocal relationships with Indigenous community members and our host nations.
Sustainability: we endeavour to be sustainable in our work practices, systems and relationships, and be part of the solution for climate justice.
