The present expanded library moved to the first floor.. It will provide convenient access and focus the emphasis on contemporary learning which necessitates the availability of research materials and databases as indispensable to graduate education. The purpose of the university library is to welcome students, alumni, faculty, practitioners, and research scholars along with casual users alike. The hope is that library patrons will find a quiet, peaceful, and useful place in the reading rooms, conference rooms, and individual carrels for study, reflection, contemplation, and repose in the pursuit of knowledge.
