Message From the Dean

Dean Lewis

It is no secret that technology is changing the way we all find, use, and create knowledge and information. The University Library has long been a leader in the application of technology to library practice. Today we are using technology in new ways both to connect with our users and to build collections and preserve digital content. In the past the library brought content to our community. Today the library takes the content created in our community — research of IUPUI faculty and students and unique materials that support their work — and makes it available to the world via the Web.

Of equal importance is our work with students to teach them how to critically and ethically use information. In the past, finding information was hard. Now the finding is easy. What is hard is to know how to filter and evaluate content so that its reliability and trustworthiness can be determined.

The library today is changing in fundamental ways, but our underlying mission remains. We use our expertise and resources inform, connect and transform the lives of the people in our community.
