In that spirit, and in the hope that the institution would also serve as a “springboard to the future,” the mission of the LBJ Presidential Library is “to preserve and protect the historical materials in the collections of the library and make them readily accessible; to increase public awareness of the American experience through relevant exhibitions and educational programs; to advance the LBJ Library’s standing as a center for intellectual activity and community leadership while meeting the challenges of a changing world.”
