Our Mission

Southwestern Illinois College Library is an integral partner in the fulfillment of the college’s educational endeavor. As a teaching library, we prepare students to locate, retrieve, evaluate, and use information effectively in the current environment of rapid technological change and we are committed to continually assessing the strength of student information literacy skills.

As the college’s principal provider of scholarly information, we are dedicated to providing quality resources that support the college curriculum through collection development, acquisition, organization and management ensuring both physical and virtual access.

Through instruction, information resources, versatile access, and welcoming facilities at each campus, the library fosters lifelong intellectual growth, discovery and self-fulfillment helping patrons to solve challenges and fully participate in the global community as informed citizens.
