Library Mission

The Library System supports an informed community of students who are seeking career-oriented education. The library system provides students with a means by which they can gain new insight through books, periodicals, and information technologies.

The purpose of the collection is to provide the community–faculty, students and staff–with material of high quality, currency and relevance to either needs. The material chosen reflects the various curricula and support teaching and research needs.

Library Resources & Services

The Library website is your one stop shop for accessing databases, searching subject & course guides, searching the FAQs and asking questions, and staying connected with the Librarians.

We (the Library Services Team) want to provide the best service possible for our students! If you have a question at any time, you can click on the "Chat with a Librarian " button, when we are online. You can also text us and email us. There are many ways for you to connect with a Librarian and we are excited to answer any questions you may have!
