UH Libraries Strategic Plan 2017-2021

Position UH Libraries as a   Campus Leader in Research   Productivity

Position UH Libraries as a Campus Leader in Research Productivity

The University of Houston is elevating its status as a nationally prominent research university. Researchers are making new demands on available resources, seeking new funding sources, exploring new modes of scholarship, and acquiring and managing a vast array of research data. The library can build the tools and expertise to help the campus navigate through these changes. By positioning the library to do so, we can significantly impact the success of campus research, preserve and expand access to scholarship at UH, and document research excellence.

Initiatives

  • Create a digital scholarship program that invests in resources, tools, space, and expertise to lead advances in digital humanities, GIS, data visualization, and qualitative data research activities.
  • Provide leadership in data management services throughout the research life cycle in collaboration with university, regional, and national partners.
  • Expand and promote repository services enabling researchers to acquire and use collections for research endeavors as well as to store, preserve, and publish research output.
  • Partner with faculty and researchers to implement instruction on research productivity tools and data literacy for classes, research labs, and centers.
