Mission Statement and Philosophy
"To assist users by providing access to library materials through efficient, on-going bookstacks management and effective circulation procedures. To offer quality service in a pleasant helpful and timely manner." In fulfilling our goal of providing first-class service to our patrons we are constantly balancing two opposing but inter-related concepts - Access and Control. We wish to provide equal and easy Access to all the information of which we are custodians. At the same time we need to exercise Control to ensure our materials are returned and available, not abused or stolen, - hence the need for policies, procedures and fines.
Access Services Desk is open when Malpass Library is open to answer general questions for library users.
