Our Mission

The Library's mission extends a philosophy of ‘Open’ through teaching, conversation, and community.

The Library accomplishes this by:

  • teaching and promoting information literacy
  • collecting and providing access to relevant and diverse academic resources
  • providing a welcoming and supportive environment for students, faculty, and staff

  • demonstrating through all library services and resources an openness to and ability to engage with divergent perspectives

  • employing a range of open information practices, including OER, open licensing, and open pedagogy
