Annual Report 2015

Our Mission:  Dudley Knox Library contributes to learning, research and teaching -- anytime, anywhere -- through relevant and evolving collections, tools, services, and spaces designed for NPS patrons of today and tomorrow.
 

How we do it:  We are a vibrant organization that flexes to meet the needs of NPS students, faculty and researchers. In 2015 we launched a redesigned, responsive website; greatly expanded discovery of and access to licensed and NPS-authored scholarly content; increased and updated student study spaces and associated technologies; and educated faculty and students about emerging requirements for access to federally-funded research results (publications and data). Library staff continued to cross-train, collaborate, and step in where ever help was needed . . . all while providing superb service to resident and distant library patrons 7 days/week.
