The Adelphi University Libraries provide education, information resources, services, and facilities that advance teaching, learning, research and creative activity. As an academic department of the University, the AU Libraries educate the AU community in the effective discovery, evaluation and use of information resources, and lead research which informs practice.
The AU Libraries are an innovative hub where knowledge is accessed, produced and shared, and where high-impact instruction is modeled and implemented in state-of the art classrooms. The sum of what the libraries provide—education, information resources, learning and creative spaces–demonstrably contributes to student engagement, learning outcomes and retention, as well as student and faculty success. The AU Libraries are the place where the University’s unique and distinctive Archives and Special collections are appropriately conserved and promoted to the campus community and beyond, enhancing the profile of the University, and demonstrably contributing to AU Advancement.
