The library has identified four key priorities which are highlighted below.
Expands student opportunity
The library's strength reflects an institution's overall level of educational excellence. Creation of an endowed fund for acquisition of popular textbooks and other resources will directly help students by defraying the cost of purchasing or renting these materials for individual use.
Reinvents our learning spaces
Through technology-enhanced spaces. Milner Library will provide unique learning opportunities not available elsewhere on campus.
Empowering through innovative programs
Emerging technologies, tutoring, writing and technology support, and disciplinary expertise, could be centralized in the library for student convenience.
Generous, ongoing support for the library's annual fund allows us to respond quickly to opportunities that benefit our students and faculty and enhance our reputation for excellence.
