The Library Department will be a vital, technologically advanced center of learning and exploration for students, staff, faculty, and the community. A competent and creative staff, who are respected and supported by the community which they serve, will facilitate users' access to appropriate resources and services. The staff, while being challenged by evolving technology, changing curriculum, and an increasingly diverse population, will be encouraged by visionary leadership and motivated by inner satisfaction. The Library collection, commensurate in size and appropriate to the needs of the population it serves, will offer both traditional and newly developing formats, and will be augmented by other resources through networking and cooperative agreements. The staff effectively works with these resources to provide timely client-based services which are a strong base for learning and personal growth in a multicultural environment.
The department's name was changed from Learning Resources to Library and Media Services, on May 21, 2003. The department was split into two separate department on August 23, 2006. This Mission Statement has been revised to reflect the August 23, 2006 change.
