Library Mission

The mission of the Helena College Library is to enable student success in the programs and degrees offered at the college.

Professional librarians will achieve this mission by collaborating with faculty, and the library community, in the selection, purchase, and creation of information resources and services; and by providing information literacy instruction targeted to the curriculum. In addition, the library exists as a quiet place of study and inquiry, fostering the concepts of lifelong learning, intellectual freedom, and cultural enrichment.
