Mission Statement

The library exists to support the University’s mission and curriculum by helping to foster the student’s spiritual, intellectual and cultural expansion.   In the information age the librarian serves as the mediator in the process of locating data, providing the information to the student and interpreting the knowledge in a manner which results in understanding by the student.  The library is no mere custodian of information but rather a vibrant participant in the process of developing usable knowledge applied with wisdom and understanding.
