Mission and History - Libraries Mission Statement

The University of Georgia Libraries provide collections and services in support of the instruction, research, and service missions of the University of Georgia. In keeping with the University's dual role as capstone of the University System of Georgia, and as a land grant/sea grant public institution, emphasis is placed on meeting anticipated as well as current needs.

The Libraries develop, manage, and store collections in an expanding variety of formats; provide access to knowledge and information in those collections using appropriate storage, access, and communications technologies; preserve the information in those collections for present and future generations; and assist and instruct the public in the use of library resources. The Libraries also serve the public through participation in cooperative efforts to collect, access, and preserve information at the regional, national, and international levels.
