What support options does the library offer that will help you in writing papers, doing research, and achieving your academic goals?
The time in which the library stood as the repository and guardian of knowledge has given way to an era in which both the production and consumption of information far exceeds the library’s ability to contain. [ To be certain, academic and research libraries continue to perform the roles of organizing, cataloging, and storing information in ways that faculty and students can readily access and
use. Most have made remarkable strides in providing users with organizational paradigms and strategies for accessing information beyond their own holdings. At the same time, however, traditional structures of authority and qualitative certification, which the library embedded both in its own collection and in the scholarly apparatus it supported, have been engulfed in a flood of information from multiple sources, disseminated primarily in digital form, and retrievable by means that the library, and hence the academy, no longer control.
