Mission Statement

The Advocate Aurora Library’s mission is to help people live well.  The Library provides value to faculty, learners, physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, pharmacists, caregivers, and team members who are accessing information in support of education, research, and health care.


We will realize this mission by:

  • Building and maintaining a current, authoritative collection of resources pertinent to the educational, clinical, and administrative programs of the health care system.
  • Providing services necessary to meet the educational, clinical, and leadership information needs of our clientele.
  • Creating welcoming, safe, and useful spaces to support our clientele as they engage in scholarship, study, innovation, collaboration, and reflection.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:

  • We focus on recruiting and retaining a diverse array of team members because we know we’re better when – by empowering diverse perspectives – we inspire creativity that leads to innovative solutions.


  • We collaborate and make positive contributions to Advocate Aurora Health.


  • We strive to anticipate and satisfy our clientele’s needs and deliver on commitments.


  • We create an environment where everyone feels comfortable and we show openness and respect to people and groups regardless of their background.


  • We seek to challenge the status quo, develop innovative methods and technologies, and reshape the Library to meet our clientele’s changing needs.
