Library & Archives

The Michael Alex Mossey Library seeks to support the College’s diversified curriculum by developing a collection of resources well-balanced in subject matter, viewpoint, and media form and by offering the collateral services of library instruction, reference, reserve readings, interlibrary loan, and circulation. In addition to these course-related objectives, the library supports faculty research and professional development and attempts to provide suitable materials for leisure reading of both faculty and students.

The Library also supports the College’s mission of preparing leaders by fostering an appreciation for our heritage. The Library does this by collecting books, documents, artifacts, and memorabilia of our College, city, county, state, and nation.
