Sustainable scholarship

The UVA Library is committed to supporting the broad, diverse needs of our community of scholars, teachers, and learners, and doing so sustainably. A sustainable investment is one that provides good value and aligns with our values. Commercial publishers’ “big deal” journal bundles are a prime example of unsustainable investments: too costly and bad for scholarship. So we are working to replace them with more strategic investments.

The pages below provide information about our effort to invest Library funds sustainably and how you can help. If you have questions about this initiative, please contact Carmelita Pickett.

We value access, diversity, and sustainability
