Mission and Vision Statement

The University Library at California State University, Long Beach was established to provide direct support for the educational mission of the university through selecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating recorded knowledge in all its formats and manifestations. The organization also provides the human, print, and digital resources necessary for the campus community to locate, retrieve, and evaluate information effectively. The Library maintains collections that promote free inquiry and intellectual development, provides instruction in the information gathering and evaluation process, and thus has a lasting and beneficial impact on the lives of CSULB students.
