Mission Statement

Library Mission Statement

The Wade College Library exists to provide services, materials, and information for the students, alumni, faculty, and staff.  The services, materials, and information available are chosen to support, reflect, and enhance the college’s curriculum.  To ensure the completion of this task, the college library maintains facilities which comply with the principles of its regional accreditation association, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.  

 

The library facilities are utilized as an intrinsic part of the educational program of the college; thus, funds are budgeted so the library can expand its holdings, including print and electronic volumes, reference books, periodicals, electronic databases, electronic books and periodicals, audiovisual materials, and course-related computer software support. Information technology, on a scale appropriate to the institution, is employed to assist users in the location of materials and information.  It is the ultimate goal of the Wade College Library, as it is of the institution itself, to create life-long learners and to provide them with the tools to achieve that goal.
