In 2003 San José State University (SJSU) and the City of San José formed a unique partnership to offer merged library services to San José citizens and SJSU students, faculty and staff at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. While this is a dynamic, collaborative partnership, the SJSU Library is fully committed to supporting the mission and strategic plan of the University. The principles of the University’s strategic plan incorporate the concepts of unbounded learning and agility through technology.1 The University Library strives to integrate the principles of the strategic plan with innovative programs.
