Mission

The mission of the Library Instruction Program is to support CSI’s General Education curriculum goal of information literacy and to provide students with the skills necessary for college and graduate level discipline-specific research. Library faculty seek to encourage the habits of critical inquiry and lifelong learning which are key elements of participation in a global information society.
