Reference and Information Services Department Mission Statement
The mission of the Reference Department is to provide an organized collection of print and online resources and teach Information Literacy skills regarding the access and usage of both on and off campus information services to the Prairie View community to enable them to become information literate, independent researchers.
The Reference Department seeks to become a comfortable ‘place,’ both in the Library as well as online; the optimal source for information for all users, regardless of location, as we equip the Prairie View student to evaluate, access and use information in a critical manner, carrying this ability to all aspects of their lives.
