Mission Statement

Stevens-German Library is a gateway to a scholarly collection that fully supports undergraduate research, state of the art technology accessing worldwide information, and quality services that facilitate faculty research. In an atmosphere of exploration and cultural awareness the library instructs students in the methods, strategies, and critical thinking that prepares them to be responsible citizens who will thrive in an interdependent, information-based society. By fostering individual intellectual development, modeling and promoting the informed evaluation of information resources, and creating links to global resources through electronic networks, the library plays a key role in furthering the instructional mission of Hartwick College.
