About New York Tech Libraries
The Library is a dynamic force in the intellectual life of the campus. It is a student-centered environment that cultivates collaboration, life-long learning skills and diversity to support the University’s mission. Within a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, we enhance the student learning experience, facilitate and support research at all levels and engage the community.
The New York Tech Libraries are essential academic partners in teaching, research, and knowledge creation. We lead by sparking creativity and collaboration with equitable and innovative spaces, services, technologies and collections.
How we pursue our mission is as important as the mission itself, thus the Libraries support the core values of both the profession of librarianship and the University. Our values ground our strategic priorities through our actions. We are driven to achieve, and to find joy and meaning in our work. We are committed to,
- User Centered
- Innovative and proactive
- Independent critical thinking, research and scholarship, and lifelong learning
- Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging
- Privacy and intellectual freedom
- Encourage innovation and collaboration
- Flexibility in information service and access
