Library's Vision

As an intellectual center, the William Allen White Library promotes an open, multidimensional learning and teaching environment that fosters the freedom to question and to grow.  Traditional information delivery systems and the integration of continually advancing technology are the foundations for the dissemination of information.  The library is expanding and facilitating information literacy programs for a diverse, global learning population through unique and innovative collaboration with the faculty of all departments, the School of Library and Information Management, and Lifelong Learning.  The needs of library users -- pedagogical, intellectual, and recreational -- are fully supported and encouraged by a staff focused on providing the highest quality service possible.
