Policies of the Adler University Library

The Adler University Libraries are dynamic partners in mentoring socially responsible practitioners through learning, research, and individual service. The Libraries collaborate with faculty, clinicians, and researchers to ensure that students achieve Adler University's institutional learning outcomes.

In the service of our mission, the Library staff selects, organizes, presents, preserves, and teaches the resources that best address the current and anticipated academic needs of the our students, faculty, and community affiliates in the following ways:

  • We deliver individual and group instruction in effective and efficient research skills, including the critical evaluation of sources;
  • We work with faculty to integrate Library resources and instructional technology into their teaching and research processes;
  • We offer excellent proactive and responsive services in support of Adler University, the Adler Institutes, and the Adler Health Services;
  • We strive for balance between traditional and emerging collection formats and service models;
  • We partner with other libraries and library consortia to leverage resources for our patrons and to increase the visibility of the institution;
  • We provide an intellectual, cultural, and social locus within the institution to foster the growth of community.

In addition to the institutional mission and values, the staff of the Adler University Libraries are guided by the principles of ethical librarianship laid out in the Code of Ethics of the American Library Association.
