How to Begin

 

The 21st Century Library is no longer a set of rooms with books.   It is a Set of Services.

The work of the academic library is to capture, curate, and make accessible both the accumulated knowledge of the human race and academic conversation around that knowledge across time and space.  

To this end our Academic Library provides tools, resources, and services to support you in this quest and your academic work.
