Library department


The faculty who comprise the Library Department endorse and embrace the framework forinformation literacy - the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning. In managing the collections and services of Murphy Library, library faculty collaborate closely with other departments to ensure that students develop the skills to efficiently identify and effectively utilize high quality, relevant, and appropriate information resources. Information literate students learn to not only navigate but also participate in the realm of scholarly communication and discourse.
