Libraries provide students with access to information, learning, and inquiry. As our students’ exploration for knowledge expands, we have ensured our resources support all student populations.
As Dean of Libraries and Academic Success Centers, I have the privilege of advocating on behalf of the libraries to ensure our team is engrained in the academic pathways and all other areas of the college community.
Our faculty librarians are immersed in our college’s eight guided pathways. Students who visit the library will find a range of resources such as access to technology, research appointments, study spaces, information literacy, community engagement and more.
The senior curriculum specialists are also committed to supporting the pathways. The Academic Success Centers offer students tutoring, study spaces, access to technology, and other academic support services.
Our Academic Resources Team serve on several state, regional, and local consortiums to collaborate with colleagues and identify student needs. After all, our goal is to provide continuous support of course curriculum in and out of the classroom.
I am encouraged by the willingness and persistence of our team of professionals whose efforts help students reach their academic goals. We will continue to assist the college community, more importantly students, with the techniques and resources needed for them to succeed.
