MCCLPHEI is an organization comprised of the library directors of the twenty-nine campuses of the Commonwealth's public higher education system.
MCCLPHEI originated in 1968 as an informal advisory group to the Board of Higher Education for the purpose of coordinating the expenditure of eleven million dollars on a six-year Books for College Libraries project. Since 1974, MCCLPHEI has become an advocacy group for library funding, and has implemented resource sharing in the electronic age. In 2007, the organization applied for non-profit educational agency status, which was awarded through the Secretary of State’s office. MCCLPHEI officially changed its name to MCCLPHEI, Inc. in 2008.
MCCLPHEI, Inc.'s mission is to provide collective advocacy and education for strong fiscal resources to serve the information needs of our users, and to advance the intellectual, cultural, and economic opportunities for our students, faculty, and all other citizens of the Commonwealth.
