Reading in the Furness Shakespeare Library

Expand global impact through intentional and effective engagements with institutions, individuals, and communities.

The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. The Penn Libraries opens our doors to all, from students and faculty across campus, to partner organizations across the Philadelphia region and researchers around the world. As trusted information providers in a rapidIy changing world, we must intentionally shape and strengthen engagement in order to communicate and deliver our services more effectively and achieve greater impact. To that end, we will increase support for learning through active collaboration with teachers and knowledge creators, and inspire critical inquiry and creative expression through our exhibitions, events, and programming.
