Vision Statement
Cazenovia College Library is the intellectual and recreational-study center of campus life located in a spacious, safe and comfortable state-of-the-art facility. An ever-growing monographic collection along with other formats of information literacy resources are offered to users in an innovative and efficient manner by a caring and committed library staff. Furthermore, many of the library’s unique resources are digitized; technology is embedded to allow easy and remote access to its many commercial data-bases via an outstanding web-portal; and means are in place to allow its users the ability to electronically access other academic libraries within New York State that will include user-initiated borrowing with 24-hour delivery. Furthermore, the library has created a "culture of assessment" that insures accountability for its goals and excellence in its service. To assure a comprehensive information literacy program across the curriculum the Library Director, the V.P. for Academic Affairs, and the Faculty as a whole work as a team to make life-long information literacy a goal for excellence in learning at Cazenovia College.
