The Libraries empower students, faculty, staff, and the broader community to engage critically with information. We support the creation of scholarship by curating resources; teaching the concepts and tools needed to find, evaluate, create, and use information; and fostering a cross-disciplinary community of scholars and creators within our space.


    We are committed to:

  • Ensuring equity of access to information
  • Supporting initiatives that make information more open and affordable
  • Creating spaces and collections, and implementing services, that are inclusive and welcoming to all
  • Representing the diversity of our campus, local, and regional communities
  • Ensuring the preservation of the historical record of the College
  • Contributing to the preservation of the cultural record beyond the College
  • Teaching students to be independent researchers and thinkers
  • Strengthening collaborative models of working with faculty and staff
  • Demonstrating a strong service ethic in all of our interactions with library users
  • Protecting the privacy of our users, including their right to use digital information without their personal information being shared, exposed or commoditized
