About the Library

Welcome to the University Libraries & Archives

Our Mission

As the intellectual heart of ESU, the University Libraries & Archives is fully integrated and engaged in teaching and learning. Fostering an intellectually open environment to inspire discovery and creativity, we cultivate a community of learners and scholars able to adapt and lead.

Our Vision

The University Libraries & Archives facilitate critical thinking, collaboration, and lifelong learning. We enrich academic experiences and achievement by providing resources, space for creation, cooperation and fraternization, and by teaching information literacy skills across the curriculum
