ASD Libraries Vision and Philosophy


ASD Libraries serve to inspire and guide students. The libraries provide students with access to information and literature through dynamic virtual and physical spaces. The libraries are a center for collaboration, communication, and innovation.

Purpose Statement

The libraries offer a variety of resources to current ASD students, parents, and employees. We encourage students to become lifelong learners by promoting a love of reading. We collaborate with faculty to teach the skills necessary to meet academic and personal informational needs.
