Research & Instruction Mission Statement

The DiMenna-Nyselius Library is committed to the educational mission of Fairfield University and the development of lifelong learners through our research and instruction services. We focus on the education of the whole person through our instructional, student-centered approach to research services that encourages curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and intellectual exploration.

We achieve the development of information literate global citizens through strong partnerships with faculty, our central position within the academic community, and by creating a caring and supportive learning environment. Our instruction program focuses on individual student learning, supporting and encouraging students to challenge themselves, and fostering an increasing capacity for learning and self-reflection. Through our adherence to the ALA Code of Ethics, we promote academic integrity, social responsibility, and the ethical use of information. Students are encouraged to engage with the world of scholarship through the creation and sharing of knowledge, and recognize and use quality information that best suits their information needs.
