  • Cultivate a balanced, up-to-date collection based on academic programs and reflective of diverse cultures and perspectives
  • Instruct students, faculty and staff in library research and the use of library resources
  • Provide a safe, student centered, user friendly environment and intentionally inclusive online and physical space
  • Support a culture of information literacy and life-long learning 
  • Preserve and make accessible Bryant's institutional history and artistic collections
  • Activate a user friendly, skilled staff that embraces technology, change, and continuous learning and growth
  • Participate in resource sharing with other institutions

The library also recognizes the recreational and entertainment needs of the Bryant community and recognizes the role these needs play in the life-long learning process.
