The University Library remains dedicated to Iowa State University’s commitments of fostering a welcoming environment, providing full access and opportunity, and promoting a sense of belonging. Drawing upon the principles of the American Library Association and the priorities of the Association of Research Libraries, the Iowa State University Library recognizes the inherent worth and dignity of every member of our community and strives to involve and empower all members to participate and succeed. We value and show respect for the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living of those in our community. We work to advance access to economic and social prosperity. And we cultivate and steward collections that provide resources about and for all people.
