Vision

SOUL is a national leader among the Egyptian private university libraries in imagining, creating, and realizing the promise of the modern academic research library.  As the intellectual and physical commons of our University, we advance discovery and encourage the growth of knowledge. We anticipate and meet the information needs of our diverse communities, at any time and in any place. We prepare students for success in life as information smart citizens.
As a center of intense intellectual inquiry, SOUL shares with the University the aspiration to be the most dynamic learning environment in Egypt.
In this desired future, the Library ensures that its collections remain forward-looking, diverse in breadth and form, open to browsing, and of world-renowned quality. Through promotion, the Library makes people aware of the resources available to them, and through innovation, it makes access to these resources easier. To serve future users, the Library preserves information across all formats and ensures effective storage system. The Library’s physical and virtual spaces respond to the changing habits of its users to enrich the campus experience and to multiply the ways in which people can pursue inquiry. SOUL with its expanding circles yields unified access, broadening knowledge, and enhanced services.
SOUL continues to embrace change and align itself to thrive on diversity, to support professional growth and opportunity, and to reward flexibility and innovation.
