The DePaul University Library counts collaboration and community engagement among the core values embraced in its strategic plan. Holding to those values, the library has pursued a number of partnership across a campus, around Chicago, and in the broader library community.
Featured Partnership: DePaul Art Museum
The DePaul University Library partners with the DePaul Art Museum to provide faculty and students with extraordinary collections and expert service designed to support teaching, learning, scholarship, and community engagement across the curriculum. Showcasing art, rare books, and archival collections through exhibitions and publications, and teaching critical thinking on-site and online, DePaul’s libraries and museums are a center for intellectual inquiry and academic engagement outside the classroom. Notable initiatives pursued jointly in recent years include the digitization and provision of open access to selected museum catalogs and publications through the library’s institutional repository, Via, and the development of library research guides designed to complement course-integrated use of museum exhibitions. As a center for the study of the work of Chicago artists, the DePaul Art Museum also complements the DePaul University Library as a center for teaching, learning, and research into the local community as part of our shared contributions to Chicago Collections.
