Lamson Library Mission and Goals
Library Mission: Lamson Library supports the curricular and social
goals of the University mission by providing access to library and
electronic resources. Through our collection of resources, our
service orientation and our various programs and displays, we strive
to provide organized access to the record of human discovery and
achievement and to the diversity of human experience and culture.
Through our services, including reference and library instruction, we
will foster and develop student competence and confidence in finding,
using, and critically evaluating print, media, and electronic
information resources. Our goal is not only to assist students with
their immediate needs but also to empower them with the skills and
enthusiasm necessary for lifelong learning.

will design, facilitate and encourage electronic access to our
resources not only to patrons in the building, but also to on-campus
constituents in their residence halls and offices – and also to those
at remote locations.

congruence among the university mission, curricular needs and library

conducive to individual and group study and instruction.
