Mission Statement

Posted: Dec 16, 2010

The mission of the Rensselaer Libraries is to support Rensselaer’s educational and research endeavors. As part of the Division of the Chief Information Officer, the Libraries actively cooperate with other Division units to provide enabling information strategies, resources, services, and technology to the diverse Rensselaer community.

The Libraries accomplish their mission by

  • Managing access to essential information resources for academic programs and research centers;
  • Selecting, organizing and preserving scholarly works and other materials of recognized long term value to the campus community;
  • Participating in library consortia and organizations to influence the expansion of information resources available to Rensselaer;
  • Providing facilities that are attractive and conducive to individual and collaborative study and research;
  • Offering personal consultation and group instruction about information resources; and
  • Sponsoring programs and events celebrating intellectual achievement and creativity.

Library collections and facilities are resources to be shared and used cooperatively by members of the Rensselaer community. As stewards of those resources, the Research Libraries strive to provide services and follow policies that are in concert with the values of intellectual freedom and the tenets of the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights.
