Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide education, information resources, services, and facilities that advance learning, teaching, research, and creative activity. As an academic department of the College, the RBC Library educates our RBC community in the effective discovery, evaluation and use of information providing diverse information resources, technologies, and study spaces, and collaborating to provide research, writing, and academic support services.
The Richard Bland College Library will be an innovative hub where knowledge is accessed, produced and shared, and where high-impact instruction is modelled and implemented in state-of the art classrooms. The sum of what we provide—education, information resources, learning and creative spaces–will demonstrably contribute to student engagement, learning outcomes and retention, as well as student and faculty success. The RBC Library will be the place where the College’s unique and distinctive Archives and Special collections are appropriately conserved and promoted to the campus community and beyond, enhancing the profile of the College, and demonstrably contributing to RBC Advancement.
