The NDCRC Digital Library

We are passionate in our belief that the Digital Library is the core of our mission and is critically important to the vital work of researchers, scholars, and to the neurodivergent community.

Strategic Vision

Our Mission

The NDCRC Digital Library provides transformative digital library services, grounded in professional partnerships and extended through external collaborations, that amplify the positive impact of The NDCRC.

Our Vision

The NDCRC Digital Library seeks to be a catalyst for deeply collaborative solutions providing a rich, intuitive and seamless environment for publishing, sharing and preserving our contributors’ increasingly diverse outputs, as well as for acquiring and accessing information critical to the Clinic’s scholarly enterprise.

Our Work Culture

Our ambitions and values lead us to act in ways that honor the following principles:

  • Openness. By recognizing the value of openness in all aspects of our work, we respond to society’s need for unfettered information access to confront the critical problems of the neurodivergent community.
  • Diversity. By proactively promoting and embracing diversity in the ideas, people and organizations with which we engage, we reflect The NDCRC’s role in Georgia, the nation, and the world.
  • User-centered design. By placing the needs of stakeholders and users at the center of our analysis and design, we develop services and collections that are both useful and widely used.
  • Community-building. By mobilizing the analytical and creative prowess of the neurodivergent community and engaging in collaborative problem-solving, we transform the way neurodiversity is understood, accepted, and appreciated.
  • Flexibility. By remaining critically responsive to changing environmental conditions and stakeholder needs, we remain relevant and provide long-term value.

Our Role

Since its founding, The NDCRC Digital Library has been working in partnership with the neurodivergent community. Our perspective is informed by our home in the NDCRC organization, as well as the emerging national and international neurodivergence network infrastructure.

Our Path

We recognize that we live at a time of rapid and accelerating change, which leads us to de-emphasize rigid long-term planning and emphasize more agile behaviors. Through our strategic vision process, we enhance The NDCRC Digital Library’s ability to track new developments, assimilate them into our thinking, and continually adapt our day-to-day actions to changing realities.
