Strong academic libraries keep us all in a better state!

Libraries on college and university campuses are key to student achievement and research excellence:

  • Students and researchers use the library to find books and journal articles, use electronic resources, consult with librarians, conduct research, write papers, and study.
  • Academic libraries support the social aspect of learning by providing space where students can meet to work on shared projects, and discuss their classes.
  • Academic libraries connect all state residents with a world of knowledge. On campus, you can access traditional materials and archives, as well as extensive online resources.
