The mission of Wessels Library at Newberry College is to sustain a physically and virtually appealing environment that promotes learning, and supports effective teaching and scholarship. The Library fosters intellectual growth, discovery and self-fulfillment by providing versatile access to needed information resources, and research assistance. The Library also provides guidance in developing skills for locating, evaluating and integrating information to assist students in problem solving.
Vision for the Future:
Wessels Library is truly at the center of the campus crossroads. As the focal point of technology-enhanced learning, it is an energetic information hub where users have access to a myriad of academic support services in a single location. The Library houses scholarly collections while it also provides an online gateway to globally linked knowledge and information sources. Assistance is also provided by professional teams of librarians committed to user-centered service. Other libraries recognize us as an exemplary model of the information commons and study our operations in the hope of mirroring our success in facilitating information literacy, technological fluency and innovative teaching, learning, scholarship and service.
