Our Mission

The IOU Libraries will be the hub and academic town square of the University by being an essential component of the academic and creative life of the institution. We will excel in collecting, preserving, and providing access to the best scholarly and educational resources; providing high quality, innovative services; and creating a welcoming and comfortable environment. We will foster an atmosphere that encourages diversity, excellence, and continued growth in finding ways to surpass our own high standards. The IOU Libraries’ physical and virtual spaces respond to the changing habits of its users to enrich the campus experience and to multiply the ways in which people can pursue inquiry.
