The library’s mission is to support the curricular and research needs of students, faculty, and staff at NYIT. The goal of library service is to help students achieve success while in college and to foster mastery of research skills for lifelong learning. It is understood that the library, by its nature, supports academic programs by partnering with them to enhance student learning, program development, faculty research, and other professional activities. The library is the cornerstone of a successful college, because it provides access to a wealth of information and offers support services that enable students, faculty, and staff to utilize and evaluate this information.
The library’s collections and services continue to benefit from the enormous changes in technology. The library’s goals reflect continued and enhanced use of technology to improve the access to the collection, the quality of the collection, educational services, and ease of use. The exponential growth in information combined with rapidly changing technology has resulted in an information environment that is extremely complex. The goals focus on resources and services to assist patrons in finding their way through this information maze.
