We select and acquire appropriate information resources, and organize, facilitate, and safeguard access to those resources. We provide a welcoming and dynamic environment with space for both collaborative and individual learning. We preserve our historic collections and the University’s archives, and we contribute to librarianship through scholarly activity.
