Library Mission and Vision

The Robert A Nicholson Library advances and sustains the Anderson University teaching-learning mission by providing an intellectual and cultural environment where learning thrives.


Vision Statement

We support and facilitate discovery, research/study, and lifelong learning through -

  • Instruction
    Librarians partner with faculty to develop and support information literate learners who can discover, access and use information effectively for academic success, research, and lifelong learning.
  • Discovery & Collections
    The library enables users to discover information in all formats through the effective use of technology and organization of knowledge. The collections are sufficient in quality, depth, diversity, format, and currency to support the teaching-learning mission of the University.
  • Library Services and Space
    The library staff is dedicated to collaborative and user-centered services. We strive to provide spaces that would serve as intellectual commons where users interact with ideas in both physical and virtual environments to expand learning and facilitate the creation of new knowledge.
  • Knowledgeable & Supportive Library Staff
    The library provides a sufficient number and quality of personnel to ensure excellence and to function successfully in an environment of continuous change. The staff continuously plans and carries out assessments to inform resource allocation and to meet your mission effectively and efficiently.
