We aspire to help our community successfully navigate an increasingly complex information landscape as engaged and informed citizens.


We embrace the Benedictine Catholic values of hospitality, stability, work, care, and learning:

  • by providing a welcoming and positive learning environment,
  • by helping researchers with respect, levity, and good will,
  • by engaging and collaborating with campus and community partners, and
  • through conscientious stewardship of funds and resources.

We are friendly, approachable, and helpful. We experiment with new ideas and seek to make meaningful change. We are curious, love to learn, and nurture discovery and growth.

Strategic Plan

We foster a welcoming and positive environment that encourages individuals to seek out new knowledge and perspectives. Through our spaces, services, and resources we empower individuals with the confidence to seek, discover, and explore in the acquisition of new information. We connect people and resources within a facility that promotes meaningful collaboration and personal growth.
