Message to our Community of Library Users

From the Library’s Mission, Vision and Values:

“As a team of courteous and knowledgeable librarians and staff, we treat users with respect and empathy at all times and serve all members of the academic community equitably.”

This means that the Library is a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of religion, political views, race, gender, sexuality, ethnic origin or physical ability.  We as a Library community are absolutely committed to this principle.  We also commit to ensuring the privacy of each person’s research.

Further, we are committed to ensuring access to information that represents a broad and diverse range of opinions, and is reflective of the histories, cultures, experiences and perspectives of people of different genders, races, ethnicities, spiritual choices, sexual orientations or identities, physical or mental abilities and places of origins.

We expect those who use our space to share these commitments. If you are aware of any situation or incident which violates these goals, or of ways we can improve in these areas, please let me know directly at librarydean@newpaltz.edu or 845-257-3719.

Welcome…we are here for you.
