Willet Memorial Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Willet Memorial Library is to provide resources and services to support the mission of Wesleyan College. The library strives to fulfill this mission by collaborating with administrators, faculty and students to support the curriculum and the four cornerstones of the College: academics, women, faith, and community. The library's programs are designed to empower students to become proficient in information and digital fluencies to build upon the foundation of a liberal arts education for the purpose of lifelong personal, intellectual and professional growth.

The Library is committed to achieving the following goals in support of this mission: 

  • To provide a physical and virtual environment that promotes study, encourages scholarly pursuits, and fosters the academic excellence that is a primary commitment of the College. 
  • To carry out an instructional program that will foster students' digital and information fluencies so they may accomplish their academic goals and have the necessary skills to support lifelong learning. 
  • To acquire, organize, manage, and preserve appropriate resources for the instructional and general intellectual needs of the College. 
  • To recognize the importance of being the first college in the world to grant degrees to women by preserving the archival history of the college, creating repositories for the college's historical artifacts, and providing appropriate access to students, scholars and the community.
