Mission Statement

Font size: AAA

The Oberlin College community is strongly committed to excellence in teaching, learning, artistry, and research. The Library actively responds to this commitment by providing resources and services that support and enhance the broad and rigorous programs in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music.

An integral part of the College's academic life, the Library builds and maintains extensive, carefully-selected, and well-organized collections that are essential for the success of the curriculum; it provides wide and effective access to networked scholarly resources; and it works in cooperation with faculty to develop in Oberlin College students competence in using the Library and other information sources. To enable faculty and students to take full advantage of library resources, the Library maintains a highly-qualified staff that is responsive to individual needs and exceptionally dedicated to service and teaching.
