Library Mission

Mission Statement


The mission of the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library is to support education, research, patient care, and community engagement at UVA Health and the University of Virginia by providing access to essential resources, services, and spaces.

Guiding Principles

  • As individuals, we are patient, enthusiastic, generous, and inspiring role models. We are respectful, forgiving, and caring. We use flexibility and versatility to serve our patrons and each other.
  • We value, discover, acknowledge, and develop individuals' strengths. We build upon these diverse strengths and utilize them to give our best expertise to our users.
  • We listen carefully, respond respectfully and honestly, and share knowledge early and often.
  • We value the team over individual gain. As collaborative team members we respect each other's contributions. We encourage a forum of diverse ideas, but agree to a unified consensus. We trust that all members of the team will enthusiastically accept ownership of actions and will see these actions to fruition.

IDEA Statement

The UVA Health Sciences Library is committed to fostering an environment that supports scholarship at the highest level and lifelong learning. In this pursuit we aspire to create a culture of engagement, belonging and trust through our ASPIRE values. We embrace equity in the broadest sense, as a means to promote fairness, opportunity, and inclusion to ensure that every person who needs our resources and services finds them universally accessible.
