Research, Instruction, & Outreach

The Research, Instruction, & Outreach team endeavors to develop skills among students, faculty and staff leading to independence and lifelong learning within the university’s stated purpose in the pursuit of liberal learning. Team members are variously involved in: library instruction, face-to-face tutorials in the use of library resources and equipment, development of web-based instruction, subject specific collection development and in routine maintenance of library collections and materials. Team members have the shared responsibility and credentials as well as the budgets to make informed selection of print and electronic materials. This assures that the University’s research collections remain current and appropriately balanced. The team interacts with all other teams to meet the library’s service goals.
