Mission and Vision

Library Mission

The library offers a powerful combination of traditional and digital resources, student-centered spaces, and a personal commitment to excellent service.  As the social and academic hub of the Oxford College campus, the library is dedicated to the achievement and success of our students, faculty, and staff.  Within an inclusive and supportive environment, the library provides agile services, information literacy instruction, learning and research opportunities, and preservation of Emory’s history for Oxford College as a part of the larger University.

Library Vision

  • build a more inclusive and transformative academic and social environment;
  • fully integrate the library’s role into the teaching, learning, technology, research, and personal enrichment of Oxford College;
  • innovate and exceed traditional library expectations as a vital teaching, research, and community resource;
  • develop and enrich collaborative digital learning experiences;
  • advance the goals of the Emory Libraries and Information Technology Services, Oxford College, and the University through collaborative partnerships; and
  • become a leader on the local, regional, and national levels by expanding our presence and services.
