Our mission is to provide an advanced, current, and relevant collection to support the academics and research performed by IUP faculty and students. We strive to incorporate the latest in information technology and library best practices to provide superb
information support to the entire IUP community.
Our collection development model employs a “bibliographer-liaison” model. Each academic department has a dedicated librarian (the bibliographer) who works directly with a specific faculty member in the department (the departmental liaison) to identify
materials to purchase, and to make sure that the items being added to our collections support the academic needs of each department.
